It might be a good idea to buy the Marriage Certificate?

That would give you her father's name and occupation (if known).

Marriages Sep 1869
Duffield Alfred Chepstow 11a 30
Evans Elizabeth Chepstow 11a 30

You can order online from the General Register Office and they cost £9.25 including p&p.

You have to register but there is no charge for that.
