Hi Nicky, I have checked the 1881 for Polly in the family you put up and she has granddaughter status!
Richard c.1841 doesn't show either.......
Could be Richard's name has become Robert as the rest fit in 1881
Hannah MIDGLEY (Head) W Female 68 Holbeck, York, England Charwoman
Robert BOOTH Son In Law U Male 40 Leeds, York, England Cloth Presser
Selina MIDGLEY Dau U Female 26 Holbeck, York, England Weaver Flax
Mary BOOTH Dau M Female 43 Holbeck, York, England Charwoman
Harry BOOTH Son U Male 18 Holbeck, York, England Cloth Presser
Polly BOOTH Grand Daughter U Female 11 Holbeck, York, England Scholar
Harry BOOTH Grandson U Male 13 Holbeck, York, England Scholar
Lucy BOOTH G Daughter U Female 8 Holbeck, York, England Scholar
Arthur BOOTH G Son U Male 2 Holbeck, York, England Scholar

So Jane is not part of this family........

I appreciate it's a a bit asking for the moon but I am looking for a mother for

Births Dec 1873
Booth Jane Leeds
9b 470

who I think comes up in 1881 as
Head M Male 39 Leeds, York, England Bricklayer
Wife M Female 37 Gornal, Stafford, England
Niece Female 7 Leeds, York, England Scholar
Dwelling: 6 East Grove Street, Leeds, Yorkshire
Lower Gornal is next to Dudley

I seem to have exhausted the 'neice' connection with no suitable mother, so I am trying a new tack while waiting for a birth certificate!

Hi Frances
Have you got access to the 1871?. If yes, I would suggest trying this for starters. Wright Booth 1871. This shows his mother as a Mary A Booth aged 30 living in Dewsbury/Batley which is on the outskirts so to speak of Leeds. -JLe.
Edit - have checked this out - please ignore

Frances without more info there are too many to choose from, also none in Leeds.

Is it maiden or married name?
