Edward and Hannah's story

They appear to have lived in  Newcastle on Tyne all their lives. We know Edward's parent's names, but that is all. On one census only, Hannah says she came from Ipswick (probably Ipswich Suffolk). Possibly her family came from there, but she spent most or all of her early  years in Newcastle on Tyne. They probably married  around 1828. Edward(just call me Ed?) was a Hairdresser in 1841, then a Furniture Broker, and two of  their sons were Cabinet Makers. One son also was a hairdresser. They had six children, five of whom were still living at home in 1861. The 1861 census is the last we know of  Edward and Hannah.

Research Notes

Genes Reunited checked for Edward, Hannah, Edward and Dorothy
LDS   had a pretty convincing birth for Edward, but otherwise nothing for Hannah or the children LDS HAS PARENTS MARRIAGE
Hannah Pitt was found  by Google search. page owner is being contacted
Census unable to find 1871 onwards
Neither LDS or Ancestry give any joy on Hannah's reference to Ipswich in the 1861 Census
