Bridget Lehane might have been a widow that married a Peter Ward? So her surname could be different at marriage?

free bdm
Marriages Dec 1853   
ERNE    Bridget        Ormskirk    8b   879
(Erne is a bit different from ESNE)

Erne and Esne don't seem to appear at the Lancashire OPC at all (makes you wonder if it is a correct surname??)

Did they have any children registered at the GRO?

Are they in the 1871 census?

They may have wed in England, Ireland or even Scotland?

amended could she have been Bridget Horan married to a Peter Ward?

Wemyss/Crombie/Laing/Blyth (West Wemyss)
Givens/Normand (Dysart)
Clark/Lister (Dysart)
Wilkinson/Simson (Kettle or Kettlehill)

That looks quite possible when you see Lancashire BMD - Erne ...Horan  :-\

I'm sure I've seen son in law for step son before

Yes that is used often but the ages in this case don’t fit for either scenario.

I double checked the LancashireBMD that does state ESNE so not completely losing it  ::)

But Erne is more like Horan/Haren etc

I have searched for Peter and Bridget possibles (But none were near certainties) Northumberland if you taken into consideration of 1861 being a duplication (I know it does happen especially when people are resident at one address and visit someone else) and also 1911 in Ireland but really they are shots in the dark
