Is this them on the 1841 England census, perhaps:

If this is them on the 1841 census, then I found them still in the same
community in 1851.

Then they are in Canada, Jane and her husband James Ford and their son
George and her mother:

On the 1861 census of Canada West (Ontario), Durham County, 2nd Concession
of Darlington Twp., pre-printed page number 27:

Two members of the household are Males, two are females, house is of frame
construction, 1 story high with 1 family living in it:
James FORD Carpenter born England age 25 Married religion: P. M.
(Prim Methodist?)
Jane FORD Wife born England age 20, Married same religion
George FORD born Ontario age 3, Single same religion
Jane MORCOME born England age 66, Single, widow same religion
If I recall correctly, on the 1841 England census, adults’ ages were
rounded to the nearest “O” or “5”.

If you don’t have a Global subscription or Canada subscription to
Ancestry.com or .ca let me know & I’ll email you the original census page.

In 2009, an Ancestry member, Nancy Reay, made a correction to the surname
spelling of Jane and wrote, “The correct spelling of this surname is
MORCOMBE. She is living in the home of her daughter and son-in-law. The
correction is being made by a family member.”

In 1871, they are still in the same locale:

Province: Ontario District: Durham West District Number: 50 Division: 05

James Ford 34 born Eng, Married, Wesleyan Methodist, carpenter
Jane Ford 30 born England, same religion
George Ford 12 all kids born Ontario

This is how they are indexed at both Ancestry and at the LDS site
www.familysearch.org in 1881 in Ontario, Canada:
