;............ancestry links this marriage with this couple:-

England & Wales, FreeBMD Marriage Index, 1837-1915 about Ann Balmer
Name: Ann Balmer
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1839
Registration district: Auckland
Inferred County: Durham
Volume Number: 24

Spouse: James Heslop

If this is their marriage, then the certificate will give you at least his father's name, which may help find, or confirm, a baptism.

freebmd has two possible marriages for James to an Ann - the one that Ancestry ties up with him and this one:
Marriages Jun 1838 (>99%)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bell Thomas Teesdale 24 296
Dixon Robert Teesdale 24 296
HAMMOND Richard Teesdale 24 296

RAINE Margaret Teesdale 24 296
SAYER Elizabeth Teesdale 24 296
*****SMITH Ann Teesdale 24 296
WADE Margaret Teesdale 24 296

Have you any of the children's birth certs to confirm Ann's maiden name? The marriage cert for the correct marriage will give you James's father.

Potty Report 10 Feb 2013 12:17

Several trees on Ancestry have him as married to Ann Smith but none have any sources for the children's births to confirm her maiden name.

1881 - could Margaret be Ann's mother - POB is the same. On one of the family trees John's occupation is given as joiner on his marriage cert - John here is also a joiner:
