One possibility is that she may be mis-transcribed as Ruth Trice(on FindMyPast),aged 15(admittedly a few years out)a servant in the household of a William Thomas,in Llywel.

There was though a Ruth Price around from the area? Married Samuel Davies in Llywel in 1872

But I haven't seen the full marriage details (might be useful!). In the census Ruth Davies says that she was born Trecastle (which apparently was a ward in Llywel)

St David's Church, Llywel is the church which serves Trecastle.  It is about a mile away but there have always been very close links between Trecastle and Llywel.  There are half a dozen houses (if that) in Llywel itself, and the main settlement is Trecastle.  Llywel also served (and still does) the hill farmers of the area, and the old coffin road or wake way can still be seen which leads from Mynydd Bach Trecastell down to Llywel, and which was the route that the coffins were carried to the church in years gone by.
