The baptism of the second child Mary:

England, Select Births and Christenings, 1538-1975 about Maria Devine
Name: Maria Devine
Gender: Female
Baptism Date: 6 Jul 1862
Baptism Place: Holy Rood, Barnsley, York, England
Father: Jacobi
Mother: Maria Hogan
FHL Film Number: 1942369
Reference ID: item 7-9 p 695

The 1881 census has these two children as being born in Barnsley. So this fits. The third child Clara was also supposedly born in Barnsley, but this doesn't seem to be true. Perhaps James and Mary did not want to say that Clara had been born in the workhouse in Durham. It#s not surprising that I couldn't find a baptism for Clara, but Holy Rood, Barnsley was/is a RC church and there are not so many RC records online.
