George and Elizabeth Porter - Manchester / Cheshire

I am researching my maternal line and can't find them in the 1851 census no matter how many different connotations of the name I use.

They are George Porter born abt 1811 N/K but believed Cheshire or nearby
Elizabeth (Possibly Littler) born abt 1816 Tilstone, Cheshire ( from later Census)
Child - Joseph Born abt 1836 Chester
Child - William Born abt 1840 - Chester
Chld - John Born abt 1848 - Chester
Child - Henry Born abt 1851 All Saints, Manchester.

I have been unable to establish George's place of birth. In the 1841 census they were living at Birkenhead but there was a tick against George's name stating not born in County.

I have located the family again in the 1861 census and beyond but by now George is deceased and does not appear in it, the last child - Henry being born abt 1851

I was wondering if anybody else was researching the family and had the answer to George's place of birth

Many thanks
