Sir William Paget Bowman, 2nd Baronet (1846-7 January 1917) was an English baronet.

He was born in 1846, the eldest son of the surgeon Sir William Bowman, 1st Baronet, and educated at Eton and University College, Oxford before being called to the Bar in 1870. Among other posts, he was Registrar of the Corporation of the Sons of the Clergy, and Treasurer of the Cholmondeley Charities.

In 1870, he married Emily Frances Swabey, daughter of an Army officer, with whom he had two sons and two daughters. He succeeded to the baronetcy on the death of his father in 1892, and on his own death the title passed to his eldest son, Sir Paget Mervyn Bowman, 3rd Baronet, a clergyman.
