  • William Smith (Clapham, 22 de septiembre de 1756 - Londres, 31 de mayo de 1835) fue un político inglés, parlamentario durante varias legislaturas. Como disidente inglés su actividad pública permitió que esta minoría religiosa obtuviese derechos políticos. Fue amigo y colaborador del político abolicionista William Wilberforce y miembro de la secta Clapham de reformistas sociales. Participó de forma decisiva en muchas de las campañas de su época a favor de la abolición de la esclavitud, la justicia social y la reforma del sistema carcelario. Tuvo una larga carrera como reformista político y social y apoyó varios emprendimientos filantrópicos. Fue el abuelo paterno de la pionera de la enfermería Florence Nightingale.
