If she was pregnant, could she have given birth in a different area and under her maiden name? Free BMD has one birth in right  year/quarter, to a child with same surname as mum's maiden name, and mother recorded with same surname.

Hello aljepeka, good to see you back  :).

Hopefully, as you have indicated, you will at least be able to give GreyFitzsimmons some 'meat for the bones' of their resarch.

You'll find her birth certificate will list her parents place and date of marriage. Buying 30 credits for 7.50 will enable you to purchase her birth, marriage and her parents marriage records, and still have some credits left.

If you purchase the Scottish marriage record, as found by rosie99, it should provide more details than an English one of the time would, and at a very reasonable cost .

Above link will give you a better explaation of what is, and, importantly, isn't, available. For the most part, only the indexes survive.
