Roger is currently (20130726) identifying Cerdic as the upper limit of Wessex management. Filiations which are probably legendary will be treated as real, with notes to that effect in the biographies of Cerdic's "descendants."
No parents or spouses are reliably attested for Cerdic. Any linking of a parent or a spouse without the express agreement of the EuroAristo project in the G2G forum will be disconnected.
Scholars tend to end the Wessex family tree with Cerdic. His ancestry is mostly legendary, built over time to look impressive. Most is copied from other northern European kings (especially Asgardian bits). See  for details.
Cedric was born in 467. He arrived in Britain in 495 at a place called Cerdic's-ore with with five ships and his son, Cynric. The landing was contested by the Welsh. Cedric Wessex became the King of the West Saxons. He died in 534.

It would be interesting to see their source, especially since they have Elesa as parent of Cerdic (died 534)
