Alfred Lamb (28 May 1845 – 13 October 1890) was an Australian politician.

He was born in Sydney to merchant John Lamb and Emma Trant. He succeeded his father in the family mercantile firm, becoming particularly involved in exporting frozen meat. On 25 February 1868 he married Mary Elizabeth Gordon, with whom he had seven children; a second marriage on 4 May 1881 to Mary Frances Brenan produced a further four children. A key figure in the Employers' Union, he was elected to the New South Wales Legislative Assembly in 1889 as a Free Trade member for West Sydney, but he died at Potts Point the following year.[1]
