Andrew Johnston (1835–1895)[1][2] was a Liberal Party politician in England.

He was elected at the 1868 general election as a Member of Parliament (MP) for the Southern division of Essex, one of two Liberals elected unopposed in the first election after the county had been restructured by the Representation of the People Act 1867 from two divisions to four.[3]

Faced with a contest at the 1874 general election, Johnston was the lowest placed of four candidates, and both seats were won by Conservative Party candidates. He did not stand for Parliament again.[3]
