This might be her marriage record:

Name: Mary Newnum

Sex: Female

Husband: Richard Godden

Other information in the record of Richard Godden

from England Marriages, 1538–1973

Name: Richard Godden

Event Type: Marriage

Event Date: 17 Nov 1667

Event Place: Smeeth, Kent, England, United Kingdom

Event Place (Original): Smeeth, Kent, England

Gender: Male

Spouse's Name: Mary Newnum

Spouse's Gender: Female

Source: "England Marriages, 1538–1973 ", database, FamilySearch ( : 12 March 2020), Mary Newnum in entry for Richard Godden, 1667.

The dates seem to fit and the marriage place of Smeeth, Kent is less than 3 miles from Brabourne, Kent where their daughter Martha was born in 1670.
