For the Irish politician, see George Sandford, 3rd Baron Mount Sandford.

George Montagu Warren Sandford (c.1821 - 17 June 1879),[1] known until 1886 as George Montagu Warren Peacocke, was a British Conservative Party politician.

At the 1852 general election, Sandford (as Peacocke) was elected Member of Parliament for Harwich but his election was voided on petition in the following year.[2]

Sandford won a by-election at Maldon in August 1854 where the 1852 election had also been declared void.[3] He was defeated in 1857, re-elected in 1859, and 1865, but defeated again when Maldon's representation was reduced to one seat in 1868. He was re-elected in 1874, and held the seat until he resigned from the House of Commons on 5 December 1878 by becoming Steward of the Manor of Northstead.[4]
