Mary was born in Darlington in 1826 maiden surname Colling














Please can anybody find her on the census of 1871 and 1881

Mary was born in 1926 County Durham, maiden surname Colling

In 1871 husband William was living in Doughty Court, York but no sign of Mary

1881 William is living in Buggs Streeet, York but again no sign of Mary

William died in 1887 in York, Mary died in Durham in 1994

Thank you to everybody who looked at my post.
I now think that I may have got this wrong. An 1887 probate record for husband William states that he is a widow so Mary probably died between 1861 and 1871 quite possibly after giving birth to twins in 1866

It does say that William was married in 1871 and 1881. He has some interesting occupations.
And that 1894 Mary Oxlade death in Stockton district (age 67) is the only one I can see.
I did wonder if maybe she was in the asylum there, but I haven't seen any evidence of it to date.
Burial of that lady was 27 March 1894, Oxbridge Lane Cemetery.

Thank you.
I shall send for the death certificate and hope that solves the puzzle.
It was only when I saw the probate notice that I had second thoughts. The person that notified the death could have her place of birth wrong and as you say the census returns give William's status as married.
William certainly seems to have been quite a character, his log standing battle with the railway company left him bankrupt and in gaol so there is a possibility that Mary had simply had enough and moved on
