George Ryves D.D. was an English academic administrator at the University of Oxford.

Ryves was elected Warden (head) of New College, Oxford, in 1599, a post he held until 1613.[1] During his time as Warden of New College, he was also Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University from 1601 until 1602.[2][3]

Ryves was involved in the translation of the King James Version. Gustavus Paine notes that a letter from Thomas Bilson to Thomas Lake refers to Ryves as "one of the overseers of that part of the New Testament that is being translated out of Greek."[4]
