Georgiana Margaretta Zornlin (1800 – 1881)[1] was an English artist and writer.

She was the daughter of John Jacob Zornlin, a London merchant of Swiss background, and Elizabeth Alsager, who was the sister of the journalist Thomas Massa Alsager. The science writer Rosina Zornlin was her sister.[2] In 1821 she published early lithographs of Christchurch, Hampshire with Joseph Netherclift.[3] In the 1820s she was a pupil of Benjamin Robert Haydon.[4]

Zornlin wrote an anonymous illustrated work A Paper Lantern for Puseyites, a light-hearted poetic spoof on young Tractarians. She also published works on the urim and thummim, and heraldry.[2] William Jaggard's Shakespeare Bibliography (1911) records three papers of hers for the Shakespeare Society.[5]
