Sir William Maynard, 4th Baronet (19 April 1721 – 18 January 1772)[1] was a British politician and baronet.

He was the only son of Sir Henry Maynard, 3rd Baronet and his wife Catherine Gunter, daughter of George Gunter.[2] In 1738, he succeeded his father as baronet.[3] Maynard entered the British House of Commons as Member of Parliament (MP) for Essex in 1759, representing the constituency until 1772.[4]

On 13 August 1751, he married Charlotte Bisshopp, second daughter of Sir Cecil Bishopp, 6th Baronet, and by her he had four children, three sons and one daughter.[5] His oldest son Charles succeeded to the baronetcy, and by a special remainder also as Viscount Maynard in 1775.[6]
