William Blount, 4th Baron Mountjoy KG (ca. 1478–1534) was an English courtier, scholar and patron of learning.

Blount was a pupil of Desiderius Erasmus, who called him inter nobiles doctissimus. His friends included John Colet, Thomas More and William Grocyn. He held a command in the force sent to suppress Perkin Warbeck's rebellion in 1497. In 1513 he was appointed governor of Tournai, and his letters to Wolsey and Henry VIII describing his vigorous government of the town are preserved in the British Library.
