The only thing I'm a bit doubtfull about is that John & Catherine already had a daughter called Margaret, born c.1848.....so, could she have died ?
Most likely, I'll search in a bit.

Bridget seems to have married James Woods in 1881. Here she is with him in 1881:

Note that with them is Catherine Quigley, relative, aged 27, so probably the sister. They are still in Price Street.

The very large Woods family moved to Northumberland.
Here is the 1911 Census which shows them quite clearly after Bridget was widowed:

Snap, Kate, just found her:

QUIGLEY, MARGARET 5
GRO Reference: 1852 M Quarter in LIVERPOOL Volume 08B Page 136

I haven't found a burial on Ancestry, though.

Thank you both - I'll have to study these records and digest a bit now ! Maybe if I order some of the certificates for these records you have given me, they may give more info.

Are you descended from Arthur?

Bridget Woods named one of her sons Arthur.

So the first Margaret dies aged 5, then they name one of the twins Margaret a few years later - but she isn't shown on the 1871 Census in Birkenhead ? Could she have died too ? Or maybe she was in service elsewhere ?

Sorry, bit late on the uptake there - yes, Arthur was my g.grandfather. But, he was born in Birkenhead on 4 May 1849 from his BC.

Perhaps this one:

QUIGLEY, MARGARET 2
GRO Reference: 1857 S Quarter in WIRRAL Volume 08A Page 270

Wirral Registration District covers Birkenhead.

There is a Margaret Quigley death Jul-Sep 1857 Wirral district (which included Birkenhead), age 2.

Edit - snap, Elizabeth!

OMG, no ! Two daughters both named Margaret dying as infants - how awful for them (if it is the same ones)
