The transcipt entry for the son, Edward, above, aged 11, is almost certainly incorrect (given IGI record and the ages recorded in later censuses) and should be 11 months.

(Robert's wife, Alice Orme, is probably daughter of George and Margaret Orme.)

* Who is John H Wharton? - A 15 year old son-in-law? (Shown as 'Single').
In the 1891 census there is a John Wharton, 25, Single, General Labourer, living with his widowed mother Elizabeth, 50, in Ince Blundell.
Language usage of the time suggests that John is the bother of a 'real' son-in-law; i.e. a brother to Robert Wharton who married Alice Orme, daughter of George. But Robert does have a brother John, recorded in the house of his grandmother in 1881.
