James Rowell (20 January 1851 – 6 July 1941) was an English-born Australian politician. Born in Cambridge, he migrated to Australia as a child and was educated in state schools. He served in the military 1877-1917 before becoming aide-de-camp to the Governor-General. He was a horticulturalist, and served on West Torrens Council. In 1917, he was appointed to the Australian Senate as a Nationalist Senator for South Australia, filling the casual vacancy caused by the resignation of William Story, who was contesting the House of Representatives. He contested the 1922 election as a candidate for the Liberal Party, which was a group of disaffected Nationalists opposed to the leadership of Prime Minister Billy Hughes; he was defeated. Rowell died in 1941.
