XF 1.3 Upper age limits

This may sound like a strange question but bear with me.
I want to create a user within the forum in order for that user to show in the birthdays widget.
However the birthdate that i need the user to have in order to show the correct age is from 1882.

As such i cant create the user as XF says the date is invalid. I have tried turning off the age requirement and creating the user with 1982 as the year and then changing this later, none of this worked.

Is there a way for me to edit this upper limit to allow the creation of the user?

It's something that would need to be setup directly in the DB (xf_user_profile.dob_year I believe).
