Do you have her in 1881 which would give us an age and place of birth for her

Peb205, What does her marriage certificate tell you about her age, abode and father? All of this information will help to narrow down the correct birth or baptism record.

According to the Censuses she was born c1857 in Harewood End, Herefordshire

In 1871 she is working as a servant for the Hartland family in Little Dewchurch and obviously marries the son of the the family who was quite a lot older than her. Ref for 1871 RG10/2670/F22/p14

I think this is her with her family in 1861
RG09/1815/F89/p14
Harewood End, Pencoyd, Herefordshire
James C Preece 35 Blacksmith
Mary Preece wife
Alfred Preece son 9
James Preece son 8
Emma Preece dau 4
Thomas Preece son 2

Checking with the GRO the children have mmn Jones and a James Cole Preece married a Mary Anne Jones Sep 1851 Newent 11 431

William Hartland died 1887 aged 69 and Emma Sophia Hartland married William Bundy Dec 1888 Ross 6a 955
