Welcome to rootschat  :)

Is it Henry Hesketh  :-\  In 1851 he is living next to Giles Eckersley who was running a beer house.  The 1861 has Giles still in Castle Street in the Odd Fellows Arms.  This may help to locate the property.

It is possible that the Tailors business was run from the house family home
