William Churchill (11 August 1661–1737) was twice M.P. for Ipswich, first between 1707–1714, and later between 1715–1717.

He was a bookbinder, stationary to the king, and cashier to the ordinance office from 1699 to 1702. He was accused of printing James Scott, 1st Duke of Monmouth's Declaration, and fled to the Netherlands.[1]

He was the son of William Churchill, and brother of the MPs Awnsham Churchill and Joshua Churchill.[2] He married Rose, daughter of John Sayer of Woodbridge; their daughter Elizabeth married Francis Negus.[3][4]
