Sorry that my post was rather long winded.   I agree that John Oldfield married sisters Sarah first then Ann.   Ann is working as a servant in the 1861 census

It is possible that John and Ann died pre 1881 and I can't trace Charlotte Malone post 1871 either sadly.   I am still puzzling who the sponser George Oldfield might be

I think might be John's first marriage from Lanc Parish Clerks online

Marriage: 9 Dec 1838 St Mary the Virgin, Prestwich, Lancashire, England
John Oldfield - (X), full age, Blacksmith, Bachelor, Whitefield
Betsy Foster - (X), full age, Spinster, Whitefield
Groom's Father: Matthew Oldfield, Stonemason
Bride's Father: William Foster, Weaver
Witness: Alice Hulme, (X); John Scragg

And the only child I can see at the moment is
OLDFIELD, JOHN        FOSTER     
GRO Ref: 1842  S Quarter THE SALFORD UNION  Volume 20  Page 790

At the moment can't see John Snr in 1841 or 1851
