Clara Emily Sherrington (nee Holland) and Albert Sherrington

I am reserching my ancestry and have hit a brick wall! I am trying to track down any details re Albert Sherrington and Clara Emily Sherrington.

Here is what I know:

Clara Emily Sherrington had two children (Edward Joseph 1877 and Eliza Louise 1879) and shows Albert Sherrington as a Master Tailor on the birth records for both. Both births were recorded in Camberwell, UK.
The first birth record seems to indicate that Clara was 25 in 1877 ie born 1852.
She is shown in the 1881 census in Camberwell, living with the two children and showing as being a widow.
She appears again in 1901 and 1911 (living in Thanet, Kent)

This is what I DONT know:
I can find no record of birh of an Albert Sherrington, nor any record of death between 1879 and 1881.
I can find no marriage record of any Sherrington to a Holland in UK.

I would love to hear from anyone who could shed some light on this or even give me some hints as to where I should look next. There is a chance of course that the children were illegitimate and that the Sherrington name is Clara's maiden name (there was a Clara Sherrington born 1851!!?) or made up entirely.
