Alexander Bannermann (fl. 1766), was an English engraver.

Bannermann was born in Cambridge about 1730. He engraved some plates for Alderman Boydell, ‘Joseph interpreting Pharaoh's Dream,’ after Ribera; the ‘Death of St. Joseph,’ after Velasquez; and ‘Dancing Children,’ after Le Maire. For Walpole's ‘Anecdotes of Painters’ he also engraved several portraits. In 1766 he was a member of the Incorporated Society of Artists; in 1770 he is known to have been living in Cambridge. In Nagler's dictionary (ed. 1878) is a long list of his works; there are good specimens in the print room of the British Museum.
