Reminder, Louisa born 1817, died 1818.
I am not convinced Louisa married to william Bolam is your girl. She is too old by 5 years. Unusual for women to age themselves. :) Your Louisa in the census was always younger than her correct birth. The Bolam daughter Elizabeth was born in 1844 Berwick, with a mother named Teague.
Your Louisa was in Hampshire in 1851, and probably there since her father’s death.
  I have tried to find the transcript for the marriage and having trouble.  Do you know who Louisa put down as the father?   My thoughts are that it is the Holy Trinity, South Shields which is where many of the family were bapt/married?  Would like to make doubly sure.
Also, I cannot find any of them in 1861 census.  Quite clearly there at Carpenter Street, Holy Trinity in 1851 census, William Bolam 38 lab; Louisa 44 yrs and Elisabeth 17 yrs.  William born in Tweedmouth; Louise born in South Shields and Elisabeth born in Tweedmouth too.

A terrific find.  Thanks. 
Still something weird about it all.  There is a daughter aged 4 yrs and a Jessie Rose 8 yrs old (can't quite read it - maybe granddaughter), but not clear.
No GRO index for either; but there are a couple without a mms

It was my mistake.   I posted in Suffolk (after finding the first two children there) and thought I was in Durham. 
All answers/replies have been amazing.  :-)

Received Ann Bell's (from Alton, Hampshire) death cert. this morning.  See attached.  It would seem that Ann did move to Hampshire after Richard died in 1843, along with children Richard and Louisa.  You are all very clever munchkins and can't thank you enough for all the information re this family.  The informant was a Francis White who lived at 54 High Street, Alton (in 1851 census).  Ann was living at 141 High Street (in 1851 census).  Francis signed with 'her mark'.  Francis named her daughter 'Louisa' - I wonder if the two ladies became good friends when Ann moved down there.
