William Russell Endean (31 May 1924 – 28 June 2003) was a South African cricketer who played in 28 Tests from 1951 to 1958.

Endean had a part in two highly unusual Test match dismissals: he was the wicket-keeper whom Len Hutton obstructed leading to Hutton's being given out obstructing the field; and Endean himself was given out handled the ball, the first time in Test Cricket history a batsman was dismissed by this method.
