Henry Hamilton (c. February 1692 – 3 June 1743), styled The Honourable from 1715, was an Irish politician.

In 1725, he entered the Irish House of Commons for St Johnstown (County Donegal), a seat he held until 1727.

He was Collector of the Port of Cork.

On 27 October 1722, he married Mary Dawson, eldest daughter of Joshua Dawson. They had seven children, two daughters and five sons. His third son Sackville was Under-Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, while his fourth son Henry was Governor of Bermuda and Dominica.
