I will keep looking!! So far my William Marshall (Mary's husband) is always identified as a cabinet maker. The Marshall siblings in Exeter were cabinet makers/carpenters. Bit of a bad lot - in newspapers for inflicting injury on an apprentice, fires in yard and slow response due to drunken behaviour etc. I wonder if my William, the eldest, wanted to distance himself from the others, hence moved to 'Torquay'. Instead of working in the Marshall family business, he was one of several working for a Mr Burt. His daughter Mary Anne b1815 was by 1841 living with her intended spouse and family in Exmouth. I think his son b1818 went to London. But I'm not at all sure. William Marshall in 'Torquay' married in 1837 and had 2 further children. They are easy to follow up.
