In 1841 this family was living in Trafalgar, Halifax
Elizabeth Cain Independent 50
Ann Cain 20 Burler
George Cain 20 Card maker
Thomas Cain 15 Wire drawer
Jane Cain 15 Burler
All born in Yorkshire
In 1841 ages over 15 were rounded down to the nearest 5 below, so 15 covered actual ages of 15 to 19, and 20 covered ages between 20 and 24

Thomas appears to have been dead by 1841, probably closer to 1826 when Jane was baptised.

But if you're looking for the George who was sentenced to 7 years in 1836 and who was transported to VDL in 1837 then this can't be the right family as George was still in Halifax in 1841.
