Thank you so much for all the time you have spent looking for me.
Sorry I just couldn't get back to reply earlier.

The children born 1818 -1827 were John's first wife Elizabeth
I'm not confident that Elizabeth Fox was his first wife for the reason 2 children were born before 1820.
Elizabeth Fox married a John in 1820 when she was 41. Died in Bolton Street (interned at St. Peters) 19.12.1830 age 51

There was a family of Holmes Henry and Mary living next door in 1841 to John, a John Dewhurst married a Betty Holmes in 1813 St John's Preston.

Thank you but I'm sure this John lived in Crown St Preston
Thank you
Ann

I wonder if there was a mistake when he called himself bachelor rather than widower? There were obviously older children born before the marriage.

Marriage: 3 Feb 1834 St John, Preston, Lancashire, England
John Dewhurst - Bachelor, this Parish
Elizabeth Blezard - Spinster, this Parish
Witness: John Blezard; Elizabeth Dover, (X)

Could you post the details of the 1851 census you have found please? At the moment the only Benjamin/Susannah I can find shows her birth place in Hants and too young for this Susannah.
