William Gerard (c. 1551–1609), of Harrow, Middlesex, was an English politician who sat in the House of Commons at various times between 1584 and 1593.


Gerard was the eldest son of William Gerard and his wife Dorothy, daughter of Thomas Page of Sudbury Court, Middlesex. He went to Harrow School and Trinity College, Cambridge from where he graduated with a BA in 1565 and a MA in 1572. He was admitted to Gray's Inn in 1572 and was called to the bar in 1580.[1]
