John Lever parent help please!!! Arrgh!!

Having frustrating time here. Trying to find parents of my John Lever married to Alice Birtwistle, living in Salford Manchester
Problem is I have 2 of em born 1832!! One has parents as John and Elizabeth, the other Robert and Nancy.
Both families live nearby (I think)and I am stumped by 1841 census reports from Ancestry.com.
One family lives Ancoats, the other Bolton. Both Johns born Manchester. Where do I go from here?
Robert and Nancy called their eldest child Robert (thought it was that family because of the tradition of calling after parents) then to top it off,
John and Alice called their first daughter Elizabeth (my GGgrandma) and guess what - yep - the other family are John and Elizabeth! I'm not really a gambling person and do like to be sure so I need some expert advice here please
Karen :(
