Caroline's birth isn't on Free BMD yet: http://freebmd.rootsweb.com

However, you can search the original images of the GRO birth index free at http://www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/vital/freebmd/bmd.aspx (choose the option "Search the complete images").  It takes a little while to search the quarters, but if you check 1838-1839, you should find her.  A birth cert will give her mother's maiden name.

How many children did George and Caroline have?  There's about a dozen on the 1881 census - poor woman!
