Hyndeley, William (fl. 1466–d. 1505). English mason. He became Master-Mason at York Minster in 1473, where he constructed the battlements on the south side. He seems to have been greatly esteemed, in spite of having spent some time in gaol on suspicion of murdering a tiler, one John Partrik, and was buried in the Minster under one of the towers.
