No help re 1851.

I can't find a birth reg for Andrew. No ages on shipping record so Andrew may not be a son.
Chances are you won't find a 1851 Census entry as the Census for Manchester for 1851 has been badly damaged and only bits of it are legible.

There are two baptisms, both at Granby Row, St Simon and St Jude church, for children of Michael and Margaret

Ann born 27 December 1848 and baptised 14 February 1849

William born 4 April 1851 and baptised 30 April 1851.

The only baptism I can find for a Michael Kirchen with father William is5 June 1823 Thrussington, Leicestershire with parents William and Ann.

There is a baptism in Salford for a Margaret Cooper born 1822 and baptised 13 May 1838 parents William and Sarah.
