William was a pupil of William Essex. He painted in enamel on porcelain, copper and gold. He executed paintings on porcelain for the Minton factory which were shown at the Paris exhibition of 1855.

There is another signed enamel by Ford of Bryon, dated 1883 in the Birmingham Museum

The enamel is after the portrait by Phillip, who painted Byron from life in March 1813, in the first flush of the poet's celebrity. The original is in the British Embassy in Athens, with another version at Byron's old seat, Newstead Abbey, Nottinghamshire.
