Bill of Much Wenlock Family History

John Bill of Much Wenlock, schoolmaster, reportedly traced his family back to about 13th century. Does ANYONE know where this family tree may be at this time?
Think it would answer a lot of questions for current researchers. He basically included families in Shropshire and Staffordshire, and noted one branch went to states (John, ancestor of Ledyard, who wrote the book on Bill history in US, ca 1879)
surely a schoolmaster, who was "proud of his family name" would have taken care that this tree was put in safekeeping somewhere.
