Scottish Brick Wall

I'm struggling with my Scottish ancestry and wondered if anybody out there could assist.

I am looking for information on Alexander Mackintosh/McIntosh and Jessie/Janet Robb.

Alexander (b 1816) and Jessie (b 1823) lived in Marylebone in London and had 6 sons, Francis, Alexander, William, James, Philip and John.

I have found them on the 1851 and 1861 censuses, but would love to know whereabouts in Scotland they came from.

One thing I did find which might be helpful is a copy of the banns of a marriage between Jannett Robb and Alexander Mackintosh in 1851 in Marylebone. I can't, however, find a record of the actual marriage. And it seems odd that they would have married after having children?
