you really need to provide a little more information when asking for help, like when did they marry, what is the last sighting you have of either Mary Ann or Thomas.

Not sure if the following is the same family?

It appears the enumerator made an error because John's mother's maiden name is recorded as Parkes.
TONKISS, JOHN    
PARKES  
GRO Reference: 1870  D Quarter in DUDLEY  Volume 06C  Page 12

A marriage took place in the March quarter of 1869.
PARKES Jemima  Stourbridge 6c 184  
Thomkiss Thomas  Stourbridge 6c 184

They moved to Lancashire some time before 1875.
