Augustine Garland (born 1603) was an English lawyer, and one of the Regicides of King Charles I of England.[1]

Garland was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and Lincoln's Inn.[2] He was M.P. for Queenborough in 1648. He presided over the committee to consider method of the king's trial, and in 1649 signed death-warrant. In 1660, after the Restoration, he was condemned to death, but suffered only confiscation of his property and imprisonment.[3] He was recorded to have been sentenced to transportation to Tangier (which had become a British possession as a dowry for Charles II) in 1664 but there is no evidence the sentence was carried out.[1]
