In 1841 I have found members of my Yates family - to match Family Search

From the G.R. single line census
1841
Yates John 1835 Lancashire Barton, Worsley & Flixton, Barton Upon Irwell
Yates Mary 1831 Lancashire Barton, Worsley & Flixton, Barton Upon Irwell
Yates John 1806 Lancashire Barton, Worsley & Flixton, Barton Upon Irwell


and in 1851 there is
1851
Yates John 1835 Eccles Barton-Upon-Irwell, Barton Upon Irwell

and his father could be :-
Yates John 1803 Cadishead Barton-Upon-Irwell, Barton Upon Irwell

Does the 1851 census show them together please?

Many thanks,
Frances

Thank you Potty, I wonder why they wouldn't show up for me like that! John and Mary shared the same christening date in family search and I considered them being twins but then they didn't have the same date in 1841 - does G.R mess the census up just to confuse me?
Ann aged 15 may be enough to find the parents marriage?
