Lennox and Addington County is a county and census division of the Canadian province of Ontario. The county seat is Greater Napanee. It is located in the subregion of Southern Ontario named Eastern Ontario.

The two original counties of Lennox and Addington, joined together in 1860, had been named after Charles Lennox, 3rd Duke of Richmond and Henry Addington, 1st Viscount Sidmouth, respectively. Unlike most county mergers in the 19th century, Lennox and Addington, which had been split off from the former Midland District in 1849, became a full amalgamation of the two counties into a single government. Other mergers still retained separate records for each of the joined counties, and were therefore known as United Counties.

Around the middle of the 19th century, the Addington Road was built by the province to encourage settlement in the northern sections of the county.
