Can you give us some more evidence? Have you found an entry in baptism records for Ottery? Why do you think that she travelled some 160/180 miles [I presume in the company of her parents] and then to marry as a child bride at the tender age of 17? If you do not know the name of her parents it sounds as you need to check the baptisms for Ottery including non conformist churches/chapels. Have you found her in later years in a census?
