Seems like this could be a woman and married to a John Gurney a grocer.

Thankyou for your help. Do you know if John Gurney had any brothers? I'm trying to link him up with other Gurneys i got in the area.

..... Do you know if John Gurney had any brothers?

John Gurney was baptised Everton on 20 Dec 1802, son of William & Ann GUERNEY

William & Ann Guerney/Gurney also baptised there, son Peter on 4 May 1804, daughter Mary on 17 May 1807 & daughter Elizabeth on 14 Jun 1810 (born 20 Mar)

Everton PR also has the Banns dated 27 Sept 1801 for William Gurney to Ann Hanson of Hartford (Hunts)

Looking at the Hunts Marriage Index available on FindMyPast.... In Hartford, in 1801 is William Gurney of Everton to Ann HOUSDEN

Also from the Hunts Marriage Index......
1824 Peter Gurney, bach to Phoebe Dixey
1832 Elizabeth Gurney, spinster to William Willymot of Warden
1835 Peter Gurney, widower to Sarah Hootton
All three were at Everton cT ... is this Everton cum Tetworth ... & was Hunts rather than Beds? or considered to be both Beds & Hunts.... as the Beds FHS Surnames Index CD lists these three marriages in Everton/Tetworth

As per 1841 census John Gurney was age 40 & living in Everton with wife Augusta age 30
As per 1851 census John Gurney was age 48 born Everton & living in Everton with wife Augusta age 42 born Tempsford
As per 1861 census living at Ostler Street Potton, John Gurney was age 59 born Everton, Grocer & living with wife Augusta age 52  born Tempsford
John Gurney death index Jun 1867 Biggleswade RD  age 64

Thus I conclude the John Gurney who married Augusta is NOT your John Gurney who was son of Peter & Elizabeth Gurney, born 1809
