What is Margrett/Margaret Dixon's maiden name and when did she marry?

Journal by noggin

Samuel Dixon was born in 1840 in Dalton in Furness Lancashire England.

From the census it would appear that is father is John Dixon born c 1790 in Hawkshead, Lancashire, England.

His mother is listed as Margaret or Margrett born 1801 Dalton In Furness. I cannot find their marriage.

Their eldest child Jane on the 1840 census was born in 1830 so would expect the marriage to be before then. All children born Dalton except Jane she was born in Urswick, Lancashire, England

Any help appreciated.

Update just found another 4 children youngest born 1821 in Dalton in Furness. Margaret was born in Dalton so assume wedding must have been there and not Urswick.
