No sign of a marriage on SP for William and Margaret SPEIR(S)/SPEAR(S)

James and Mary had eight children. Only one given a middle name. Can Newlands help in any way?

Mary Newlands

Naming pattern is not as expected but if you remove Janet and Robert you have William & Margaret for Mary's parents, as per death certificate.
