1871
Dunoon & Kilmun Argyllshire
Alexander Martin 57 Gunmaker Paisley
Eleanor C Martin wife 28 England
Alexander Martin son 6 Glasgow
Eleanor Martin dau 4 Glasgow

There is, I think, another son John Elsden Martin born Scotland 1868 with Eleanor's parents in Lewisham in 1871, down as Nephew. Ref is RG10/767/F74/p51

1881
Hamilton, Lanarkshire
John Tait 50 Gamekeeper Lanarkshire
Eleanor Tait wife 38 England
Grace Tait dau 22 Lesmahagow
Mary Tait dau 26 Lesmahagow
Agnes Tait dau 19 Lesmahagow
Margaret Tait dau 15 Lesmahagow
James Tait son 12 Lesmahagow
Thomas J Tait son 9 Lesmahagow
John W Tait son 1 Glasgow
John Martin Visitor 12 Glasgow
James Tait nephew 28 Edinburgh

There is also this Census entry for 1891 and I'm guessing that they are Eleanor's children with Alex Martin plus her son with John Tait who has taken the name Martin

Henrietta Street, Girvan, Ayrshire.

Eleanor Martin 24 Living on private means
John E Martin 22 Gunmaker
Frederick R Martin 15
John W T Martin 11

I can't find Eleanor at all in 1891
