I can't see a baptism for Lydia Wallis.
How did you get back to her, and how do you know her year and place of birth?

Is she the 1838 marriage to Charles Clark?

What is her fathers name on the marriage cert?

Looking at 1841/51 entries there is a David Wallis b 1793 & wife Elizabeth b 1794 living in Tring.

The 1851 census gives Elizabeth's place of birth as Wigginton, Herts.

A tree on Ancestry has her parents as David Wallis & Elizabeth Johnson

If you have ancestry access - here's the link

I think I need to do is post a look up request from parish records. The other family trees on Ancestry etc point to David Wallis and Elizabeth Johnstone as Lydia's parents, but I don't see any baptism or marriage documents/banns for her parents or her marriage to Charles Clark in Beckhamstead, Herts
Pointon in Hull and Staffordshire
Clarke in Manchester
Clark in Shelton, Nottinghamshire
Koenig in Chicago
Baird and Scott from Dundee Scotland

David Wallis married Elizabeth Johnson 26/1/1815 Tring, Hertfordshire (he signed, she made her mark) - per FindMyPast.

David and Elizabeth have 3 children with them in 1841 - Elizabeth bc.1821, Ann bc.1823 and Edward bc.1829 - Tring baptisms are on FindMyPast but no trace of these 3 baptised there either.    I would suggest the family were non-conformist and baptised at a non-conformist church whose records are not available online.

Again, on FindMyPast:

Charles Clark, of full age,  Labourer, son of Robert Clark, Labourer married 19/2/1838 Tring Parish Church to Lydia Wallis, minor, daughter of David Wallis, Weaver.   Both of Tring.   Witnesses William Baldock and Elizabeth Wallis (both made their mark).
