Fairbairn Clapham, Surrey, UK / Cumberland

I am looking for the siblings of Edward Frederick Fairbairn born 31 Jan 1819, ch. 26 Feb 1819 at Holy Trinity, Clapham. He married Sarah Guiver Knott at the same church on 1 Feb 1840.
Edward's parents were George Fairbairn and Susannah Muskett who married at St George the Martyr, Southwark, Surrey (now London) on 31 Jan 1818.

I have been looking for their dates of birth. I have been unsuccessful so far. But I have found that there was a Henry Muskett who married a Euphene[?] Fairbairn. Were Henry and Susannah Muskett brother and sister, who then married Euphene and Edward Fairbairn, also brother and sister, or is the fact that they share names a co-incidence (or are they cousins or some other relative?)? Have any Fairbairn researchers untangled this one yet?

Edward and his wife Sarah then had several children: Robert, Kate, George, Ann Susannah, John Thomas, James and Margaret. They moved from the London area to Carlisle around 1848. Kate lived in Yorkshire and was my gg grandmother.
