Thanks everyone - especially those who pointed me to the marriage bond - about the only record I hadn't already checked. What's more, I went on to the next page in the register where it clearly shows her as "Janem Raven". That clinches it for me.
Clearly I can now rule out her being the Anna Raven born in 1676, so the line stops there as her birth/baptism is probably not available. But better to stop there, than add in wrong data.

I'm sure we all really hope you find that birth / baptism record you need. It's far better than clutching the wrong one and trying to "make it fit". She'll turn up - probably someone on here will discover her for you! Good luck.
