Could anybody help me find Martha Pratt born c 1825 in Bishops Stortford, Herts please. I have found her in 1871, 1881 but would like to find her earlier.

1861 RG9/1099 f157 p2
High Street, Colchester
There is a Martha PRATT aged 35 working as a draper's assistant, born Bishop's Stortford. Six live-in assistants with family of draper George AGER.
Ancestry has her age indexed as 55 but looking at the image (rather fuzzy writing) I think it is 35.

Thank you looking at the Census form it looks like age 35 so this could be her but I wonder where she is before this.
