However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with William:

I don't think William Morris's wife was Esther Bisp. The Esther Bisp added can be found marrying Henry Robbins in 1822 in Bristol and I've added evidence to the page that William Morris's wife was actually Esther Hanman. Is it okay if I detach Esther Bisp and add Esther Hanman?

A baptism for Esther Hanman at St. John, Gloucester (same as the 1851 census) is found on 3 May 1801 to William and Ann. Marriage between William Morris and Esther Hanman on 30 December 1824 at Hempstead, Gloucester (image added).
