Ralph Gordon King Noel Milbanke, 2nd Earl of Lovelace (2 July 1839 - 28 August 1906) was the third child of William King-Noel, 1st Earl of Lovelace and his wife, Ada Lovelace, the only legitimate daughter of the poet Lord Byron. He was born on 2 July 1839, and lived at Ockham Park in Ockham, Surrey. He had an older brother and sister, Byron King-Noel, Viscount Ockham and Lady Anne Blunt. When his brother died 1862, he became the 13th Baron Wentworth, although he was subsequently styled as Viscount Ockham as the then new heir apparent to his father's earldom. He later became the 2nd Earl of Lovelace with the death of his father in 1893.

He was married to Fanny Heriot (Abt. 1843-July 1878), with whom he had a daughter Ada King-Milbanke, 14th Baroness Wentworth, and Mary Caroline Stuart-Wortley (17 October 1826-2 April 1896) in 1880.
