Emmeline Pidsley neé Haydon

She married Richard Hayward Pidsley in March 1874 and their son Richard Hayward Pidsley was born in June 1874.
After the death of her husband in March 1877  she had a lodging house .
Looking for more information on Emmeline we find this .

Will of William Lambert of Wallon, Esq., only son of William Lambert, otherwise William Lambert Gorwyn, of Wallon deceased, 1853

Bequeaths to his son William Lambert the younger Waterland in Cheriton Bishop, previously in the possession of John Gale and now in the possession of the testator. Also bequeaths to William 5 properties with shop, garden, orchard and field called the Three Lions previously in the possession of John Gale and then in that of Samuel Gregory, all of which descended to the testator as heir in law of his uncle John Lambert Gorwyn.
Bequeaths £400 to the Rev. William Ponsford and his brother John Ponsford, both of Drewsteignton, in trust for his granddaughter Elizabeth Emily Lambert, only child of his deceased son John, to go to her on reaching the age of 21 or marriage if earlier, with remainder to his son William. During her minority the income is to be used for her upkeep and education.
Bequeaths to the same trustees Wallon and the property called Millhouse with Wear Mill, both now in the occupation of the testator and William Phillips, in trust for his son William during his life and then to his second son Charles James and his male heirs, with remainder to the younger sons of William and their male issue, and failing them to William’s eldest son William Henry and his heirs. His son William may during his life rent out part or all of these properties for a term not exceeding 21 years.
Bequeaths to his son William all his other estate real and personal, including estates vested in him as mortgagee. Aloso appoints William his executor.

Source: DRO, a copy of the will having been preserved as a document in an 1875 legal case involving Emmeline Pidsley, possibly his daughter-in-law remarried. William’s dates were 1780-1853 (see Table 3).
I think there is a mix up.
Emmeline Pidsley is Emmeline Haydon and she married in 1874 Richard H.Pidsley.
In the census of 1891 she is 44 .So born in 1847.

In her lodginghouse are living three members of the Gould family .probably relatives from her husbands first wife Anne Gould.
