My friend Willmott- how did she get her name?

She was christened Willmott Edith 1918 on the advice of grandmother who said it was important to maintain the name. Several uncles and male cousins also have Wil(l)mot(t) as a middle name.
Grandma's parents were John and Elizabeth Murden who married at Oldhurst Huntingdon England in 1854 and emigrated to Melbourne Australia in 1855. The story is known from here on. Elizabeth was born about 1836 at Oldhurst, her father was Thomas Saddington, labourer, and mother was Mary Ann, maiden surname Wilmot.
I am unable to locate the 1841, 1851 census, or the death of Mary Ann Saddington.
Maybe someone out there will know of the Wilmots in Huntingdon in the 1830's. Thankyou.
