Just a hunch but itÔÇÖs possible that Catherine may not have been candid about her age in 1911. Possibly she was older that Robert and wished to keep that secret. I say that because there was a Catherine White born in Co Down in 1877 to a James White. The birth was registered in Kilkeel, Co Down (Vol 16, page 559). Discrepancies of quite a few years, in the ages in the censuses, were quite common. Perhaps thatÔÇÖs her?

I wonder if this is also her in the 1901 census:
