This is Mary from the UK. Further info on William as follows;- His father was Robert Dewsnap b1809 in Hurst Derbyshire & his mother was Martha(?). He had a sister called Martha who lived with Samuel & Rebekha Dewsnap (Robert's brother) in 1851.
This census shows that Robert was widowed & William was working as a weaver.
In 1861 Robert has married Rebekha as she was widowed but I have been unable to trace Samuel's DOD.
I cannot find William on 1861 census. I believe that he joined the army sometime in 1850's & may have served in the Crimea.
I have been unable to trace any brothers for William.
Hope this helps.
