No mother's maiden name for the first child but is James the first? Can't use the marriage as a guide as it was in 1859. Is Mary Jane the last?

If the dob in 1939 Register is correct then we have a problem - Sep Q 1842 and Nov 1842. Age at death for James points to abt 1843. In 1861 census James points to 1843 and Joseph to 1846. A gap between 1846 and 1850.

Also looking for any burial records.
