Here's one possibility. If he is yours it would appear his father died young as his mother has remarried. Alternately she had 2 children before she married.

Here's the marriage

Marriages Mar 1847
Matthews Martha        Farnham 4 113       
YOUNG Charles Farnham 4       113

1851 HO107 Piece: 1595 Folio: 75 Page: 12
Reg. District:       Farnham Sub District:       Frimley
Parish:       Aldershott
Address: North Lane, Aldershott Surrey

YOUNG, Marther Head Married 32       1819 Seamstres Aldershott, Hampshire
MATHEW, Miram Daughter 9 1842       Scholar Aldershott, Hampshire
MATHEW, Ritchard Son 4       1847 Aldershott, Hampshire
YOUNG, Ann Daughter 2       1849 Aldershott, Hampshire
YOUNG, Lucy Daughter 6 Months 1851 Aldershott, Hampshire

Couldn't find a birth registration for William Richard Matthews but there is one for plain William and another for Richard. This Richard matches with the age of Richard son of Martha on the 1851 census

Births Sep 1846
Matthews Richard Farnham 4 139

And the birth registration as William
Births Sep 1845
Matthews William Farnham 4 147       

Births Jun 1844
Matthews Miriam Crane Farnham 4       136

I wonder..... could this mean that Martha Mathews/Young had the maiden name Crane

Not sure if this is the same person in 1861 there were 23 other live in assistants/domestics working at the drapers it must have been quite a big store.

1861 RG09 Piece:       430 Folio:       111 Page:       31
Reg. District:       Farnham Sub District:       1 Frimley
Address:2, High Street, Aldershot Surrey

WHITE, Thomas S       Head Married 43       1818 Draper And Gasfitter Hartley Wintney, Hampshire
WHITE, Samuel       Brother        Unmarried 18 1843 Clerk Hartley Row, Hampshire
MATTHEWS, Richard Apprentice Unmarried 16 1845       Apprentice
Reading, Berkshire

Do you have any idea when he moved from England to Canada?
