Richard Gaywood (fl. 1650–1680) was an English engraver.
Gaywood is stated to have lived to 1711, but this seems uncertain.
Gaywood's portraits include copies from engravings by Hollar, and those in the Centum Icones of Anthony Vandyck. Others were those of: William Drummond of Hawthornden, and the early kings of Scotland in his History of Scotland, 1655; Oliver Cromwell; James Shirley; Sir Peter and Lady Ellinor Temple; George Monck, Duke of Albemarle (after Barlow); Madame Anne Kirk; General William Fairfax; Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke; and John Browne the instrument maker.
Among the frontispieces and title-pages was that to Johann Jacob Wecker's Secrets of Art and Nature (1660). Other plates were a set of social scenes, representing the Five Senses, a view of Stonehenge, The most magnificent Riding of Charles the II to the Parliament, 1661, The Egg of Dutch Rebellion (satirical print, 1673), Capture of a Whale at Sea, Democritus, and Heraclitus.
