Widow and offspring

Just found a strange baptism in that the father is not named but was on an earlier one.
James Benjamin Wright baptised 23/01/1832 father James Wright mother Maria
Benjamin Wright baptised 8/2/1836 no father mother Maria.
This fits with the 1841 and 1851 census for both children.
I would have thought the father would have been listed even if he had died or is that wishful thinking - all in Great Yarmouth.
