I'm intrigued as to how you know all that about her

Are you sure the death is the right one if she can't be found in the 1841 census? There is a 30 year old Susannah House who seems to vanish between 1841 and 1851 in Bradford upon Avon in 1841.

I found their marriage on the Nunney Parish Records and the death on Ancestry.
I'm not sure it is the correct one, although it is the only death I can find for Susannah House.

I looked at the online transcripts for Frome baptisms, but couldn't find her. How do you know her father's name?

PR transcripts of the marriage say she was of the parish, marriage by banns, witnesses Richard Perkins and Richard Hoddinott (serial witness).

FreeREG has a death and burial for a William House but he seems a bit too young:
Frome Workhouse, William House age 75, abode Cloford, died 23 Jan 1844, buried 25 Jan 1844 Cloford.

There is a William House age 70 on the 1841 census at Holwell, parish of Nunney, with Christian age 60 and Joseph 40, Richard 30 and James 15. There are baptisms for children of William and Christian at Cloford, including Joseph in 1802.

I'm just wondering whether Susanna could have died in or before 1802 and Christian could be William's second wife? In which case he could have knocked a few years off his age. All the baptisms I can see for William and Susanna's children are before 1800, or are there some later ones that I haven't spotted? I haven't managed to find the marriage to Christian yet to see if William is a widower, though.

I've looked and can't find another death record for Susannah.
William may have been married to Christian, he had a child with Susannah called James (Davis House) born 1792. Just found that he died in 1792, a few months old.
