Hi Fifer,

You didn't say where they were on the 1881 census? Perhaps that would give us some clue where they were married and we could check the BMD for the certificate. If you sent for it then you've got her maiden name and her fathers name. Then also her birth certificate, if you know her name is definately Holt it should be straightforward to find so you can send for it?

In the meantime there are two 1861 census that might be of interest?

10 Booth Street Court Haydock. In the civil parish of Newton
Joseph Holt 40 wheel wright Ashton
Mary wife 42 Haydock
Margaret daug 6 Haydock
Francis son 4 Haydock
Mary A -?- 1 Newton

then Turnpike Road Lowton
Thomas Holt 41 silk weaver Newton
Mary wife 40 silk wever Newton
William step son coal pit worker Newton
Thomas son 15 coal pit worker Newton
Ann daug 10 Newton
Susannah 7 Newton
Margaret 4 Newton

I hope this might help?
