Hi Gabora,
I've been through the 1851 and 1861 census for Biddenden, couldn't spot George or Elizabeth there. This entry comes from Ashford 1861 census:
ref RG9 512 folio 11: Castle Street, Ashford
Elizabeth Roots boarder widow age 64 coachmans widow (almswoman) born Egerton (head of house is Sarah Woodcock age 61, also a widow)

I've found a George Roots in Benenden, 1861:
ref RG9 507 folio 163: Private House, Benenden
George Roots head mar age 31 carter born Sussex Northiam
Mary do wife mar age 24 born Benenden
Edith do dau age 3 born do
Elizabeth do dau age 1 born Sandhurst

You don't give any ages or birthplaces for George and Elizabeth, and it's really difficult looking for people with a fairly common name. If you've any other clues as to where they might be, then do post again and I'll have another look.
