Alfred John Hampson (15 September 1864 – 19 May 1924) was an Australian politician.
Born in White Hills, a suburb of Bendigo, Victoria, Hampson received a primary education before becoming a eucalyptus and soap manufacturer. In 1911, he was elected to the Victorian Legislative Assembly as the Labor member for Bendigo East. He remained in that position until 1915, when he transferred to the Australian House of Representatives, winning a by-election for the seat of Bendigo. He remained in Parliament until 1917, when the Nationalist Prime Minister, Billy Hughes, contested the seat and defeated Hampson.
Following his defeat, Hampson enlisted with the AIF on 23 October 1917, giving his date of birth as 15 September 1868, and his wife Alice Maud Caroline Hampson of 76 Addison Street, Elwood (at that time very much a working-class suburb) as his next of kin. He embarked for France in November 1917, serving with the 2nd Railway Company. Returning to Australia in October 1919, he was appointed as an inspector for the Victorian Closer Settlement Board.
