OK using the fact that John had a much older sister named Elizabeth, I believe this may be the family on the 1851 & 1841 UK Censuses BUT would appear that Catherine (mother) may have emigrated to the US after the death of her husband and that John may have been born to an widowed "unwed" mother......
