Bristol Robotham Lord (born September 21, 1883 in Upland, Pennsylvania – November 13, 1964 in Annapolis, Maryland), was a professional baseball player who played outfielder in the Major Leagues from 1905-1913. He played for the Cleveland Naps, Philadelphia Athletics and Boston Braves.

Lord is best known for the deal that sent him to the A's in 1910. Owner/manager Connie Mack claimed that he was essential in their subsequent pennant-winning seasons, but he wasn't near the equal of what Mack traded to get him - namely, Shoeless Joe Jackson, who would go on to hit .408 in his rookie season of 1911 and finish his career with the third highest batting average of all time.
