William Smyth (1765-1849) was born in Liverpool, the son of a banker. He attended Eton, before entering Peterhouse, Cambridge, in 1783 (B.A., 1787; M.A., 1790), where he became a fellow in 1787. He was tutor to Richard Brinsley Sheridan's son Thomas, before becoming a tutor at Peterhouse in 1806. In 1807 he was made regius professor of modern history at Cambridge. His lectures on modern history and on the French revolution were published in 1840. Smyth also gave concerts and wrote poetry. He died at Norwich on 24 June 1849.
