William Eames (d. 1637) was an English organist.


Eames succeeded Thomas Weelkes as Organist of Winchester College in 1604, and was then Organist of Wimborne Minster from 1610–21.[1] In 1624 he was admitted as Organist of Chichester Cathedral. An unknown offence occasioned his expulsion from office in 1635.[2]

Eames is buried at Winchester College.
