It looks very likely to me that this is the same family.It is not an absolutely perfect fit but for the dubious ones NorthWales Bmd has
Sarah Elizabeth  1869 Hope(each name used once on different censuses)
Robert Thomas  1870 Wrexham(there is a Thomas only in Hope 1870)
George              1871 Hope(age under described by 2 years on later census)
Martha               1879 Wrexham no sign of a Martha Mary or Mary Martha

Cerney is a property next but one to The Green Brymbo

Have to go out now,will look further if necessary this evening

Regards
Roger

Will have to take another look at data as there was a restructuring of registration districts/sub districts including Hope area in 1871
