Hugh Williams (c.1694 – January 1742) was a Welshmarker politician.

He was the son of John Williams, of Chestermarker and Glascoedmarker, who was in turn a younger son of Sir William Williams, 1st Baronet. Hugh matriculated at Jesus College, Oxfordmarker in 1712, entered Gray's Innmarker on 10 February 1713, and was called to the bar in 1718.

He married first Ursula Bridgeman, daughter of Sir John Bridgeman, 3rd Baronet, and second Susannah Norris, daughter of Edward Norris, but had no children by either.

Williams defeated Thomas Lloyd, of Llanidanmarker, in 1725 to enter the House of Commonsmarker for Angleseymarker as a Whig. He defeated Lloyd again in the election of 1727. He voted in favor of the bill to retain the Hessian troops in British pay in 1730 and the Excise Bill in 1733. He was unsuccessful in contesting Chestermarker in 1734 and left Parliament, dying on January 14 or 18, 1742.
