In 1861 the family is living at 6 Ward Street (pg26 ED4 Islington
Liverpool LAN).
Joseph Moorhouse, 37, Stone mason, Kirkburton, Yorkshire
Sarah, 32, Halifax, Yorkshire
Mary Ann, 12, Liverpool
William H., 10, Liverpool
Harriet, 7, Liverpool
George, 5, Liverpool
Benjamin, 2, Liverpool
Sarah, 3mo, Liverpool

In 1871 the family is still living at 6 Ward Street (pg33 ED4
Islington Liverpool LAN).
Joseph Moorhouse, 48, stonemason, Kirkburton, Yorkshire
Sarah, 42, Halifax, Yorkshire
William H., 20, Stonemason, Liverpool
Harriet, 17, cigar maker, Liverpool
George, 15, office errand boy,Liverpool
Benjamin, 12, office errand boy, Liverpool
Sarah, 10, Scholar, Liverpool
Joseph, 6, Scholar, Liverpool
James, 4, Scholar, Liverpool

You do know that those children were all baptized at Saint Peter's in
Liverpool. These extracted records were found in the IGI at FamilySearch.
International Genealogical Index / British Isles
MARY ANN MOORHOUSE - Christening: 29 APR 1849 Saint Peter
WILLIAM HENRY MOORHOUSE - Christening: 02 MAR 1851 Saint Peter
HARRIET MOORHOUSE - Christening: 26 DEC 1853 Saint Peter
GEORGE MOORHOUSE - Christening: 02 JUN 1856 Saint Peter
BENJAMIN MOORHOUSE Christening: 31 OCT 1858 Saint Peter
SARAH MOORHOUSE - Christening: 07 APR 1861 Saint Peter
JOSEPH MOORHOUSE - Christening: 10 JUL 1864 Saint Peter
JAMES MOORHOUSE - Christening: 17 JUN 1867 Saint Peter

And possibly these too:
ALLAN MOORHOUSE - Christening: 25 DEC 1869 Saint Peter, Liverpool
JULIA MOORHOUSE - Christening: 31 DEC 1871 Saint Peter, Liverpool

BTW, a more approriate subject line would have been "Joseph
MOORHOUSE, 1861 and 1871 census"
