I'm afraid I'm totally lost! I think I'll need to re-read this all to understand it.
Dead-end ancestors:

William Cartwright, d. 1910, Wigston
Lewis Lipman, b. ca. 1798 (son of John Lipman, late of Glasgow)
Simon McGrigor/McGregor/MacGregor, b. ca. 1789, m. 1811, Fodderty, d. 1859, Fodderty (parents Alexander MacGregor and Mary Grant)

It may be a good idea if you cross off the Goddard queries from your first post and start new threads for them both as it is confusing when you ask about 3 different people on one post.  You can just go back into the post and edit it.

And I thought it was all ok now  ;)

You have the marriage to Sam... or Tam...
You have the couple in separate places in 1851.
There is a possibility for 1861 but wife is named Jane
There is a death in 1864
Poor law record for wife in 1866 - wife Tammy with correct place of marriage and address

As the wife’s name is so tricky, I was thinking that Jane in 1861 should be Tam.../Sam... wife.
The place of birth for wife in 1851 and 1861 is the same.

Got it! It makes much more sense when it's spelled out like that. Sorry I'm a bit slow ;D I just need to locate a burial record for Samuel now, I found one for his first wife in Shoreditch courtesy of a kind member.
