William W. Irvin (April 5, 1779 [1] – March 27, 1842) also spelled Irwin[2] was a lawyer, farmer, politician, and U.S. Representative from Ohio.

Born near Charlottesville, Virginia, Irvin pursued an academic course and later studied law. He was admitted to the bar in 1800 and commenced practice in his native county. He moved to Lancaster, Ohio, about 1801 and continued the practice of his profession.

He was appointed an associate judge of the court of common pleas for Fairfield County by the first general assembly in 1803. He was impeached in 1804 by the Ohio House of Representatives and subsequently removed from office by the decision of the Ohio Senate.

Irvin served as member of the Ohio House of Representatives in 1806 and 1807, and was a justice of the Supreme Court of Ohio from 1810 to 1815. He finished third in election for Governor of Ohio in 1822.[2] He was again a member of the Ohio House of Representatives 1825-27 and served as speaker in 1825 and 1826. He came in third for election to the United States Senate in 1827, losing to Benjamin Ruggles. [3]

Irvin was elected as a Jacksonian to the Twenty-first and Twenty-second Congresses (March 4, 1829 – March 3, 1833). He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1832 to the Twenty-third Congress.

He returned to his farm near Lancaster and engaged in agricultural pursuits until his death on March 27, 1842.

Irvin was married to Elizabeth B. Gillespie in Lancaster on February 2, 1813. They had seven children.[2]
