The marriage bond for William Alsop and Elizabeth Easun states he is of St. Ann Westminster Middlesex occupation calico cutter, she is of Fulham.
It's dated 7 October 1775

Are you sure he's your man, odd to go from calico cutter to artist.

Many thanks, I will check it re his credentials as an artist.  I have looked it up before but I may have got my wires crossed.
