Default Can anyone read this please

There is a marriage on left hand side near the bottom on 30th between Francis McQuade and Bridget Sanahan and wonder if the names below are the witnesses or another marriage.

It looks like Jas and Patti Headyson?

I am really confused as a birth in 1862 in Newcastle upon Tyne of James McQuid gives the parents as Francis Mcquid and Bridget Sanahan on the GRO birth register but the mothers maiden name on the baptism is Sullivan???!!!

To confuse matters more the other children various version of the surname McQuade have the mothers maiden name as Sans, Sands but when daughter dies in US it says her mother's maiden name was Shanahan.

The other couple will be the witnesses - most of the other marriage records have a W before the witnesses' names but it is missing here. Jno & Cath Haydon. The curly bit at the end of the H is part of the H, not an e.

As for Sullivan / Shanahan, maybe it was originally written down as Shanahan in the daybook or whatever they used, and misread when it was copied into the actual baptism register.
