William Wilson (March 19, 1773–June 6, 1827) was a U.S. Representative from Ohio.

Born in New Boston, New Hampshire, Wilson attended the public schools and was graduated from Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire, in 1797. He studied law in Johnstown, New York, and was admitted to the bar.

He moved to Ohio and settled in Chillicothe about 1805. He engaged in the practice of law there before moving to Newark, Ohio in 1808, having been appointed chief judge of the court of common pleas, and served until 1823.
