1851 census
I believe this to be Sarah, living as the niece of Henry Whittle and his wife, Sarah, in Garston Village.

Henry Whittle, age 36, Dock Lab, born Rufford.
Sarah Whittle - see below - age 50, born Garston.
Ann Ellis, (stepdaughter), age 19, servant, born Garston.
John Ellis, (stepson), age 17, servant, born Garston.
Sarah Webb, (niece ), age 13, servant, born Garston.
Peter Rice, (lodger), age 28, dock lab, born Wales.
Samuel Green, (lodger), age 26, dock lab, born Oxford.
David Lawson?? (Laurie, Lawsey??), (lodger) age 26, dock lab, born Oxford.
Thomas Baxendale, (lodger), age 18, dock lab, born Toxteth Park.
Simon Lumpson?? (lodger), age 25, dock lab, born Woolton.

 
Sarah Whittle, (previously Scarisbrick, then Ellis), née Webb (1800 - ).

Sarah Whittle was born in 1800 as Sarah Webb, daughter of Samuel Webb and Ann Yarwood, therefore sister of Richard Webb, thus making her 'young' Sarah Webb's aunt as implied on the 1851 census record.
She first married Thomas Ellis in Childwall on 14th July 1823 and produced four (known) children: Catherine (1824), Anne (1832), Samuel (1828) and John (1834), all baptised at St Michael, Garston.

Sadly, Thomas Ellis died and was buried in Garston on 17th June 1835. Sarah was remarried, to Joseph Scarisbrick, on 7th June 1836 at St Peters, Liverpool.
Joseph Scarisbrick was publican of the Blackhorse in Garston. He and Sarah are found on the 1841 census, together with her father, Samuel and her children Catherine, Anne and John.

Widowed again, she married Henry Whittle, labourer, of Norfolk Street, son of Richard Whittle, labourer, on 14th April 1846 at St Nicholas, Liverpool. The marriage register confirms that her father was Samuel Webb, labourer.
Henry Whittle died in August 1857, and was buried in Toxteth aged 39, a labourer from Grafton Street.

Following Henry's death, Sarah applied for parish relief in Toxteth Park but was told to go back to Garston. (Liverpool Mercury 20 May 1858)
By 1861 she was staying in Speke Road, Garston, with her son, John Ellis and his wife Mary and their 9 month old son, Thomas.
By 1871 she was with her sister, Mary, and husband, Robert Hornby, in Quarry Street, Much Woolton. She was still there in 1881.


Sarah Webb's marriage, (from certificate):

Sarah Webb married Thomas Abbott on 13th December 1857 at St Nicholas Church, Liverpool.
Thomas is described on the marriage certificate as a labourer from Hardy Street, son of Edward Abbott, labourer.
Sarah lived in Gt. George Square and was daughter of Richard Webb, labourer.
Witnesses were William Jones and ?? Jones (Most likely Ann, Sarah's sister, wife of William Jones.)

Link to Hardy Street and Gt George Square at Old-Maps.co.uk Link to Hardy Street and Gt George Square at Old-Maps.co.uk
Google map showing Hardy Street and Gt George Square, Liverpool. Google map showing Hardy Street and Gt George Square, Liverpool
Gt. George Square was one of Liverpool's finest squares, and Hardy Street effectively forms one side of the square. It is most likely that she and Thomas were both living in lodgings in order to qualify as living in the parish of St Nicholas. They may even have been in the same lodging house or hotel, both quoting the address slightly differently to avoid suspicion of co-habiting.
