William Henry Sturtevant (1823 - December 19, 1897) was a Congregational minister, political activist, and artist based in Massachusetts. Sturtevant was born in Barnstable and studied for the ministry in New Bedford. He was ordained Minister of the Holmes' Hole (Vineyard Haven, Martha's Vineyard) Congregational Church in 1852. The church was generally in decline and so Sturtevant was dismissed from the position in 1856. He relocated to South Dennis in the same year, taking a position in the Congregational Church there, where he remained until 1860. Afterwards, he returned to Martha's Vineyard, where he became the minister of a church in West Tisbury. He remained in this position until 1877, when some sort of upheaving in the church forced him out. Sturtevant moved to Tiverton, Rhode Island, where he remained as pastor of the Pawtuxet Congregational Church until his death in 1890.
