I wonder if that is the same family as Martha Maud's father is given as William?

Actually it does look like it

MARSHALL, ALFRED    mmn   MCGUINNESS 
1869  M Quarter
MANCHESTER 
Volume 08D  Page 232

So why the difference in the father's name?

The baptism was after the mother died and only a week before Martha did, so probably all done in a rush and an error was made. Even more possible given the records suggest this was a private baptism ie not in the church where the register was kept
