Hi Jean

I constantly tell people to be wary of the rounded ages on the 1841 Census, then fall into the trap myself. The family's ages on the 1841 Census for the older ones - 50,50,25,15,20, so William ch Jan 1813 would be 28 in 1841 and Margaret ch Feb 1815 would be 26 in 1841. Williams rounded down looks OK but Margaret's is a bit steep , should be 25 ?
However I think the discovery of Richard's incorrect ch with mother Ann Thompson seems to confirm she is the mother.
