Smyth, William (fl. c.1465–d. 1490). English mason. He carried out works at St John's Church, Glastonbury, Som., c.1465, and was Master-Mason at Wells Cathedral, Som., before 1480. He may have designed the crossing vault under the tower, the Sugar Chantry Chapel (1489), and other parts of the Cathedral. He was probably the architect of Crewkerne Church, Som. (c.1475–90), and may have worked on the vaults of Sherbourne (c.1486–93) and Milton (after 1481) Abbeys, both in Dorset.
