Sir Michael Hicks Hicks-Beach, 8th Baronet DL (25 October 1809 – 22 November 1854) was a British Conservative Party MP and High Sheriff.

He was appointed High Sheriff of Gloucestershire for 1840 and then returned as Member of Parliament (MP) for East Gloucestershire from January 1854 until his death in November of the same year.

Hicks-Beach married Harriett Vittoria Stratton, daughter of John Stratton, in 1832. [1]

He died in November 1854, aged 45, and was succeeded in the baronetcy by his eldest son Michael, who became a prominent Conservative politician and was created Earl St Aldwyn in 1915. Hicks-Beach's younger son William Frederick Hicks-Beach was also an MP, as was his son-in-law Sir John Dillwyn-Llewellyn, 1st Baronet, husband of his daughter Caroline Julia Hicks-Beach.

Lady Hicks-Beach died at Penllergaer, the residence of her Dillwyn-Llewellyn son-in-law, on 20 January 1900.[2]
