William Peverell ( 1040 – c. 1115, Latinised to William Piperellus), was a Norman knight. Although he is not one of the fifteen proven Companions of William the Conqueror, he probably fought at the Battle of Hastings, and is listed in the Battle Abbey Roll of dubious origin.

William's mother seems to have been a Saxon named Maud, daughter of the noble Ingelric. She was married to one Ranulph Peverel, from whom William took his name. Historically, it had been claimed that he was actually the illegitimate son of William the Conqueror, but this cannot be supported by the historical record.

William married Adelina of Lancaster, who bore him a daughter Adeliza, born circa 1075, and a son, also named William, born circa 1080.
