William Beanes (24 January 1749 - 12 October 1828) was a medical doctor in the American Colonial Period. Beanes was in the limelight during the War of 1812. In the summer of 1814 the British landed near Benedict, Maryland. They marched to Upper Marlboro which was about 16 miles from Washington, D.C. The town was mostly deserted except for its most prominent citizen, Beanes. He offered British General Robert Ross and Admiral George Cockburn the use of his house as his headquarters from August 22 until the afternoon of August 23. Because of this, Ross took it as Beanes being in sympathy with the British. There was no resistance to the British in town, which additionally confirmed the notion. Beanes spent the remainder of his life on Academy Hill in Upper Marlboro. He died there in 1828 with his wife preceding him in 1822.
