When the 1861 Census was taken, Richard, although recorded as married, was lodging with his brother James (and wife Elizabeth) in Mellor Lane, Mellor. Had he separated from his wife Mary or was he living there for work reasons?

By the time of the April 1871 census, Richard was a widower and lodging in the house of the Sexton. This was close to the home of the spinster Ellen Cranshaw who he married in 1873.

Thomas Eddleston - Child of Richard Eddleston & Ellen
Born: 28 Jun 1852
Abode: Blackburn
Occupation: Weaver
Baptised by: Henry Burgess

Did the 18 years old Ellen Cronshaw conceive a child by Richard Eddleston, who was married by then but had fathered two children out of wedlock with Mary Emmett. Such an affair could explain why Richard and Mary were living apart by 1861 but why would Mary take care of the child and declare him has her son in the 1861 census?
