This could be Henry Leaver’s death.

Henery Lever of Haggate, buried 28 April 1837 – Haggate Baptist Chapel

It would all tie in - why the James is never on a census with his parents and why I can't find Henry on a census.
It just begs the question of who was Henry

We have not come across any other Henry Leaver’s so I guess he died. Perhaps Mary died before 1841 as well, hence their son is with a different family.

When – 8 May 1831
Where – St Peter’s Church Burnley
Groom – Henry Leaver, weaver, bachelor of this chapelry
Bride – Mary Taylor, spinster of this chapelry
Witnesses – James Hey & John Low

It would be nice if we could find the baptism for James.

Mary LEAVER Extwistle, buried 10 January 1839 Haggate Baptist Chapel

How about this one?

Meary Leaver of Haggate, buried 29 August 1842 – Haggate Baptist Chapel.

Do we have this person in the 1841 census? (although she could have been a baby when she died).

Yes, you're right - we've already accounted for the other one in 1839.
Haven't checked the census yet.

According to Lancs bmd, the one who died 1842 was aged 39. (shown as Lever), so distinctly possible

No - the only one of approx the right age was the mother of Tabitha, but we've been with her before and I think she was an unmarried mother whose partner was a Jackson.
I've tried Lever, Leaver & Leever so far.
