The 1851 census does look right, trying to tie in their address at or before marriage.. possible same as 1851 at least for John.. They are not in the 1848-1851 Paisley Dir' :(

First son is John so I'm sticking with John. That then points to Mary White but then no daughter Mary in census. If Mary died then third daughter Sarah = Mother. No way of telling for baptisms from 1855 with no parents listed.
