I traced your Israel Norman back (on one Census he is Isaac Norman) but if you look at the family it seems that the name of Isaac changes to Israel:

John Knowles b1857 the eldest son of John Knowles and Martha (so he was the brother of Thomas Knowles MP)

Married 1853 to Jane Almond at St. Peter & St. Paul Ormskirk, Jane was born in Lathom (Janes father was an engineer)

John died 15.09.1860 and we find his widow in the 1861 Census at Crawshaw Cross, Warrington Road, Ince with:
Robert 6
John 4
Martha 3
Thomas 1

Jane died in 1862

1871 Census - John 14 - Pupil at Knutsford

also in the 1871 Census we find:
Robert 16 - Nephew
Martha 13 Niece
Thomas 11 - Nephew
living with their uncle Israel and his family at Westwood

1881 Census - Hawthorn Cottages, Ince
John Knowles 24 - Mining Engineer
Martha E. 23 - Housekeeper (sister)
Robert Knowles 26 - Crpenter (at waggon works) - brother

1891 Census - Westwood Lane, Bryn Mount
John Knowles 34 Mining Engineer
Agnes Arsono Knowles 29 (Agnes Arsino Lyons married John 1883 at All Saints, Wigan)
Florence Madeline Martha Knowles 6
Mary Ethelwin 5
plus 1 domestic servant

1901 Census - Westwood Lane, Bryn Mount
John 44 - Mining Engineer
Agnes 39
Florence Madeline Martha 16
Mary Ethelwin 15
Isaac Norman 9
Agnes Dorothy Lelia 7
Evelyn Phyllis 6
plus 2 servants

1911 Census - Westwood, Westwood Lane
John 54 Mining Engineer
Agnes Arsinoe 49
Florence Madeline Martha 25 - Student at College
Mary Ethelwin 23 - student at College
Israel Norman 19 - Mining Student at College
Agnes Dorothy Leila 17 - student at College
Evelyn Phyllis 16 - School
plus Housemaid and Cook

So Israel Norman was the only son of John and Agnes and John Knowles MP was his great Uncle (ie. the Uncle of his father John)
