I went back through my census records last night and refreshed my memory on of the family of James (b. 1814) who married Hannah Nayler. He is definitely not John's brother, because James' father is the Thomas who was listed as a weaver in the 1851 census and schoolteacher in the 1861 census. In the 1851 census, James had William and Sarah (nee Balmforth) Tarbotton living with his family, and William is listed as James' brother. I bought William and Sarah's marriage certificate and it states William's father is Thomas Tarbotton, schoolteacher. This would mean that Thomas was, at the most, 17 years old when James was born and his wife, Elizabeth, would have been no more than 15, so James would have to be their eldest child. This means that John, who is older by a year or two, and James are most likely first cousins as their families were closely associated throughout their lives.
Do you have anything more on this?
