Sir George Henry Rose GCH (1771 – 17 June 1855) was a British politician and diplomat. He was educated at St John's College, Cambridge.[1] The eldest son of George Rose, he was Member of Parliament (MP) for Southampton from 1794–1813 and for Christchurch from 1818–32 and 1837–44, Clerk of the Parliaments from 1818–55 and sometime Envoy Extraordinary to Munich and Berlin, and to the United States in 1807–1808 in the wake of the Chesapeake-Leopard Affair. This last mission was an utter failure owing to the harsh and inflexible instructions he received from George Canning.[2]

He was the father of Hugh Rose, 1st Baron Strathnairn.
