The GenesReunited newspaper link is not free so No.

I might have found something else though

"Mr. Rawlings said prisoner worked for him over a year ago, and gave his name William Ayres."
The Salisbury Times Wiltshire, England

Same date. There seems to be a few William Ayres around

What about Mary Elizabeth Bennett, who were her family. Can you go back at all with her?
Was she born around the time he was?

Bennett can be a gypsy surname like Ayres

Maybe as DNA tests get cheaper you will be able to find some families that share DNA with you? So not all hope is lost, just not discovered yet
