Sir George Hyde (1570/1-1623) was an English politician and Knight of the Bath.

Hyde was the eldest son of William Hyde of South Denchworth in Berkshire (now Oxfordshire) and his wife Catherine daughter of George Gill of Wyddial in Hertfordshire. The family had been influential in Berkshire for centuries. Hyde was the stepson of Richard Lovelace. He was MP for Tamworth, where his wife came from, in 1597 and for Berkshire in 1601.[1] He was succeeded in that office by Francis Knollys. He was also made Knight of the Bath. He lived at Kingston Lisle Park in Berkshire (now Oxfordshire) and built the house preceding the present one.
