Bridget Sarsfield 60 states mother in law on census but her surname is Sarsfield so either Catherine was a sarsfield or the surname is wrong.

All the above listed as born in Burnley except Patrick who's place of birth is listed NK

I cannot find a marriage for Patrick Sarsfield and Catherine ..............

This looks like the birth of Bridget shown in the 1861 census. If you get this birth cert it should give both parents names
