Child with Elizabeth CLARK: 
1.  Jane WILKINSON, b. ca. 1690, Baltimore Co., MD 

The fact that William and Elizabeth appear to have had only one child suggests that Elizabeth died birthing Jane or possibly birthing her next child, which also died.  There are other possible scenarios, of course, but in any case, Elizabeth appears to have died early on.  And a long period of "widower-hood" may explain William's liaison with Martha CAGE (not that men's liaisons need much explaining, but back then, sex between unmarried persons was, literally, not the casual affair it is today).

Child with Martha CAGE:
2.  (Child) CAGE, b. in or bef. 1693
