Sir William Cockburn, 11th Baronet (2 June 1773 - 30 April 1858) was a Church of England clergyman. He was Dean of York (1823-1858) and was famously defended on a charge of simony by his nephew Sir Alexander Cockburn, 12th Baronet in 1841.

Cockburn was educated at St. John's College, Cambridge, graduating as twelfth wrangler in 1795 and receiving his MA in 1798 and DD in 1823. He was appointed the first Christian Advocate in 1803 and Dean of York in 1822.
