Another Brick wall - Wyddial


dovercourt but born Enfield
Another brick wall.

I have just found the marriage for one of my ancestors, Thomas Bolton to an Anne Driver on the 28 June 1809 in Wyddial Herts, on which it says that Anne is a Widow.
One problem with this is that I do not know if the Driver surname is her married name or original name.
The second is her date of birth, on the 1841 census it shows her age to be 60 but she could be upto 64 years old, so this gives DOB as 1777 to 1781.
On the 1851 census she is shown as 76 which gives DOB as 1775.

I have tried all the usual searches but nothing comes up other than the marriage in 1809.

Also very little information on parish records for Wyddial on the web.

Any ideas as to what to try next.

Could this be her??

Sorry I don't know how far Therfield is from Wyddial.

Its 6.9 miles from Therfield to Wyddial, not far in those days, so could be right.
Now to find a death for John Driver


Found 2 deaths for John Driver in Throcking Herts, 29/8/1805 and 10/12/1808
