Theory

Harriet Rofe works as assistant to Benjamin Rofe (Shoe Maker) in 1851 census @ Canterbury. She is listed as “Niece”.
Benjamin Rofe (b.1809, Tenterden) is the son of Benjamin Sampson Rofe (b.1783, Tenterden) & Ann Parton – members of the Presbytarian Church, Tenterden.
Benjamin Sampson Rofe (b.1783, Tenterden) is the son of John Rofe & Susanna Sampson – members of the Presbytarian Church, Tenterden.
Susanna Sampson (b.1744) is daughter of Thomas & Mary Sampson.

I believe George Rofe (b.1788, Tenterden – census info) is the younger brother of Benjamin Sampson Rofe (b.1783, Tenterden) and son of John & Susanna Rofe.
Susanna Rofe would be 44 at the birth, which is not “beyond the bounds”.
The family of George Rofe are Non-conformists, just like the Tenterden Rofe’s.
This makes Benjamin Rofe jnr & Harriet Rofe - 1st Cousins, not Uncle and Niece.
This also makes Thomas Worsley Rofe (who married Deborah Daynes) and Charlotte Rofe (who married Thomas Daynes, Deborahs brother) 2ns Cousins once removed.
