William de Blois was a medieval Bishop of Worcester.


William was a canon of the diocese of Lincoln and held the office of Archdeacon of Buckingham in that diocese by 10 May 1206. Presumably he was related to William de Blois, Bishop of Lincoln, but the exact relationship is unknown.[1]

William was elected to the see of Worcester sometime around 25 August 1218 and his election was confirmed by the papal legate to England Guala.[2] He was consecrated on 7 October 1218. He died on 17 or 18 August 1236[3] or on 17 August.[2]

In 1224 William was appointed Sheriff of Staffordshire[4] and Shropshire.
