=========================

Assuming that the above is correct, there is a fair chance these are siblings-

==============================

I have tried the various apparent siblings etc, in both the 1841 and 1851 Censuses, without any obvious scuccess.

==============================

In the 1841 Census, there is only one BONSFIELD Entry born & residing in Westmoreland; but taking up the BoUsfield in the above Marriage, there are between 150 and 200 entries.

Interestingly, there are almost 50 BoUsfield correspondingly in the 1851 Census; and approaching 50 for BoNsfield including variants such as BAnsfield.

==================================

DIXON and variants produce too many to readily assess in both Censuses.

===================================

On FMP, there are about 35 Mary Dixon Deaths in Westmorland, born 1800 to 1820.

Similar for William Dixon Deaths.

===================================

Surprisingly, again there are about 35 Deaths of John Dixon, born 1830 to 1832.

===================================
