If you look at the original image it looks like 52 not 57, but either way it's fairly normal for ages not to be correct, people weren't as aware of their age as we are today, people fibbed in the hope of getting an Old Age Pension, people wanted to appear closer in age to husband/wife and so on.


Have a look at the 2 on Alexander's age.

It's always worth looking at all the pages, for example on the House and Building return you can learn a lot about the house and in this case the landlords name.

This would be Eleanor mother of Muriel, wife of Edward Honeyford?
Her father is Fredrick on her marriage cert in 1909 and already dead.

Muriel and family in 1911
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Armagh/Camlough/West_Street/306740/
gives Eleanor's birth place as Cork.

and Elwyn already gave you a likely link to Eleanor living with her brother George and their mother Jane in Cork in 1901

George also gives his father as Fredrick on his marriage, with an occupation of Seaman.
