Lieutenant-Colonel Frederick Romilly (21 March 1810 – 6 April 1887), was a British Whig politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1850 to 1852 and a cricketer who played for MCC.

Romilly was a younger son of Sir Samuel Romilly and Anne, daughter of Francis Garbett, of Knill Court, Herefordshire. Lord Romilly was his elder brother.[1] In 1836 he played one first class match for MCC against Cambridge University in which he scored one run in each innings.[2]

Romilly was returned to parliament as one of two representatives for Canterbury in March 1850, a seat he held until the 1852 general election.[3]

Romilly married Lady Elizabeth Amelia Jane, daughter of Gilbert Elliot-Murray-Kynynmound, 2nd Earl of Minto, in 1848. He died at Westminster in April 1887, aged 77. Lady Elizabeth died in January 1892.[1]
