I have a feeling that you are correct about the John Randerson from Yorkshire as son of William and married to Elizabeth - from which line you descend.
I am going on a tree prepared by another Randerson in the UK that was passed on to me by my cousin several years back. It has a line of descendency from William of Leeds to John of Winterton and down. I do not know the basis for this. The John I speak of was married to Hannah Gilding in Winterton in 1828 producing one child and one that died at birth. Hannah died in 1833 and is buried at Winterton. John then married Ellen Godfrey in 1834 and had three children plus one that apparently died as an infant.
This John appears on 1841 and 1851 censuses in Winterton, but not later. His wife (who seems to go by the names Eliza and Helen on various occasions) and children were in Hull at 1861 census.
There is no record (that I can find) of death of John. There is no record of birth or christening at or near Winterton. There appear to be no other Randersons in that part of Lincolnshire that could have been his parents or siblings. The party who prepared the tree that I am working from must have made the link to St Peter's in Leeds and assumed that the John, son of William, and John of Winterton, or equal age, were one and the same. He may be wrong on that score.
Anyway, I have information on William's parents, John who married Sarah Bolton, along with brothers and sisters should you be interested. These, at least, are records from St Peter's and may well be of greater relevance to you than to me.
