Hi Jayne/Julie
Thats the one i have come up with as well - ref Durham 10a 365

Marriage to Mary I believe is Mary Ann Hodson J/S 1880 Dudley ref 6c 5

In 1891 Mary A is down as born Bilston, Staffs
Checking 1871 census reveals a Mary Ann Hodson of the right age born Bilston, married to William Hodson. I cannot find him or his children in 1881.
