Alexander was born about 1774 (based on 1841 census and being at least 16 at the time of his marriage)

Second marriage

Elizabeth seems to have remarried, (or at least engaged in partnership), to John Eakin. I still have not been able to find this marriage in the the index, but these are the census references from which the notion arises, and which are fairly conclusive:

This, surely, is Edward Cherrington, William and Elizabeth's son?

Similarly, I believe this is Mary Cherrington, William and Elizabeth's daughter
