Sir William Hardres, 4th Baronet (25 July 1686 – 7 July 1736) of Hardres Court, Kent was a British politician who sat in the House of Commons in two periods between 1711 and 1735.

Hardres was the son of Sir Thomas Hardres, 3rd Baronet and his wife Ursua Rooke, daughter of Sir William Rooke.[1] He inherited the baronetcy on 23 February 1688.[2]

Hardres was elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Kent on 13 June 1711 and remained until 1713.[3] He was then elected MP for Dover from 28 August 1713 to 26 January 1715.[4] He was elected MP for Canterbury from 31 August 1727 to 11 April 1735.[5]

Hardres died at Hardres Court aged 49 from what was called at the time "gout in the stomach". He was buried in the church of Upper Hardres.[1]

Hardres married Eliza Disher daughter of Richard Thomas of Lamberhurst and widow of William Disher. His son William succeeded to the baronetcy.[1]
