Edward Howard, 2nd Earl of Carlisle (27 November 1646 – 23 April 1692), known as Viscount Morpeth from 1661 to 1685, was an English Whig politician.

Carlisle was the eldest son of Charles Howard, 1st Earl of Carlisle, and his wife Anne, daughter of Edward Howard, 1st Baron Howard of Escrick.[1] He was elected to the House of Commons for Morpeth in 1666, a seat he held until 1679, and then represented Cumberland from 1679 to 1681 and Carlisle from 1681 to 1685. The latter year he succeeded his father in the earldom and entered the House of Lords. He also served as Governor of Carlisle between 1679 and 1687.

Lord Carlisle married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir William Uvedale, in 1668. He died in April 1692, aged 45, and was succeeded in his titles by his son Charles. Lady Carlisle died in 1696.
