William Abbott (28 October 1856 – 22 December 1935) was an English cricketer. Abbott's batting style is unknown, though it is known he fielded as a wicket-keeper. He was born at Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, and educated at Winchester College.

Abbott made his first-class debut for Surrey against Gloucestershire in 1877. He made two further first-class appearances for the county in that season, against Middlesex and Yorkshire.[1] He scored a total of 9 runs in his three matches, which came at an average of 1.80, with a high score of 5. Behind the stumps he took 7 catches and made 2 stumpings.[2]
