William V. Smith (1840 - ????) was a New York City surveyor active in the middle to late 19th century. Smith, although quite litigious, is otherwise elusive due to the commonness of his name. He was born in New York, and held the position of City Surveyor with John Bute Holmes in the 1860s and 1870s. He produced several maps in partnership with Homes. In 1886 he was appointed Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Public Works under the notoriously corrupt Rollin M. Squire.
