William Reed (c. 1670-1728) was a colonial North Carolina political figure who served as President of the Governor's Council for many years, and as Acting Governor from 1722 until the arrival of Gov. George Burrington in 1724. Reed repeatedly clashed with colonial governors and even wrote an official complaint from the Council about Gov. Richard Everard's administration to King George II that was sent the day after Reed's death. He died at his home in Pasquotank County.
