In Oct 1786 he was appointed one of the trustees for the Pamunkey Indians. He was a justice of King William County and was appointed sheriff, 21 Apr 1788, to finish the term of the late John Hickman. He refused to accept another appointment in 1789, but was again sheriff from 1802-05. He also served as a member of the House of Delegates representing King William County, 1777-78, 1784-85, 1791 and 1793-98. William inherited "Liberty Hall" from his father.
