Martha Roobotham or Martha Rowbotham of Eyam

I have a Martha Rowbotham married to John Ridgeway in 1796. Until today I assumed she was born in 1770 and baptised in Stoney Middleton. I now notice on the burial records for Eyam Parish Church, Martha Ridgeway died in 1833 aged 65, which means she was born in 1768. There is a Martha Roobotham in the baptism records in 1768. Does anyone know have any theories which one is correct?
