nee surnames etc


Active member
I have an Elizabeth Star who in May 1782 in castle riding married a Joseph Kirby.On the transcript it states she is a widow.Elizabeth (if the death info I have is her) was around 25 yrs old when she married Joseph. Usually on marriage info it would say nee this name formerly this name showing she had been married before.
How do I go about finding out if Star was her nee surname or her last married name. I was under the impression that if you are a widow then you can revert back to your nee name. All help and advice appreciated.
