Hi claycrop -
The family are listed on the 1851 Census at Isle Row, Whithorn
The surname is transcribed on www.freecen.org.uk as Christen.

William Christen   26   Head    Agricultural Labourer      born Sorbie, Wigtownshire
Elisabeth Christen 27   Wife                                          born Ireland
Agness Christen     8    Dau      Scholar                         born Mochrum, Wigtownshire
Cattren Christen     4    Dau     Scholar                          "         "                 "
John Christen       14days   Son                                    born Whithorn
Sarah Cown       24   Sister-in-law -married    Agricultural Labourer        born Ireland
Mary Cown         8mths  Niece                                      born Mochrum, Wigtownshire.

All above spellings are as the transcriptions on Freecen. I would consider that Elisabeth and Sarah could  be sisters.

Looby :)
