Peregrine Bertie (ca. 1634 – 3 January 1701) was an English politician, the second son of Montagu Bertie, 2nd Earl of Lindsey.

One of the English volunteers in the French army in 1654, Bertie subsequently served as a cornet in the Royal Horse Guards in 1661, and was promoted to lieutenant in 1667 and captain from 1676 until resigning in 1679. He was first returned to the House of Commons in 1665, as Member of Parliament for Stamford, a seat he retained until 1679.

In 1674 he married Susan Monyns, daughter of Sir William Monyns, 2nd Baronet, by whom he had three daughters:

He was again returned as MP for Stamford in 1685, but after the Glorious Revolution, was returned for Westbury instead, a seat he held until 1695, when he stood down. A relatively minor political figure, he was, like the rest of his family, a Tory and a supporter of his brother-in-law, the Marquess of Carmarthen.
