Reggie has already posted the details of Annie Elizabeth - married to Joshua Gaunt, and tied back to the census. Unfortunately not in the parish records to double check though.

I can only see 1 marriage for David/Elizabeth on Freebmd. This is the parish entry but I'm not convinced it is correct - his occupation is wrong, but I can't find the couple on the 1851 census to double check.

David Illingworth Birkhead (occ either farmer or tanner, not clear on image)
Birth Year: abt 1828
Age: 22
Marriage or Bann Date: 12 May 1850
Parish: Leeds, St Peter
Father's Name: David Birkhead (labourer)
Spouse's Name: Elizabeth Hartley
Spouse's Father's Name: William Hartley (weaver)

Neither married before, both of Armley. Witnesses Samuel & Eliza Pearsons.

Not convinced though. Also, not finding anything definite on Emma.
