Hamilton Boyd was an American politician who served as mayor of Portland, Oregon, in 1868-69. He is thought to have come to Portland in 1860, worked as an assistant county clerk, and later worked as an accountant in the Ladd & Tilton bank. He was elected to a two-year term as county commissioner in 1868 and served as mayor from 1868 to 1869. He was elected mayor on June 16, 1868, and assumed office later that month. He was succeeded as mayor by Bernard Goldsmith in 1869.

He is buried in the Lone Fir Cemetery in Portland.
