Does the 1841 census say whether or not she was born in the county of Somerset, Anne?

It is very faint but looks like no. North Stoke is very close to the Somerset Gloucestershire border and also within walking distance of Wiltshire. There is a large Hopes family in North Stoke and Weston Bath but no sign of Hester. The parish record gives bride's parish as North Stoke,

Changing the county I have just found a baptism for Hester Hopes in Bitton Gloucestershire which is the next parish but over the border in 1783. Parents William and Mary. The age is a couple of years out but it is an unusual name so do you think I should go with it?

Also 20 July 1772 North Stoke marriage William Hopes to Mary Rose.

I would try to find something to prove it's the same person, yes.
