Carlos Antonio Carrillo (1783 – 1852), was a resident of Spanish Las Californias Province and Alta California Province, Mexican Alta California Territory, and the U.S. state of California over the course of his life. He was a landowner and politician of the Californios era.

Carrillo was the son of a prominent colonial California family, born in the Pueblo of Santa Barbara in upper Las Californias Province. His father, José Raimundo Carrillo, was a soldier who came to California with the Portolá expedition in 1769, and served at the Presidio of Santa Barbara for twelve years.

Carlos Antonio Carrillo was the Mexican Governor of Alta California from 1837 to 1838. He took his oath as Governor in Pueblo de Los Angeles (present day Los Angeles) on December 6, 1836.[1]

Governor Manuel Micheltorena gave a Mexican land grant of the Island of Santa Rosa, in the Channel Islands of California, to Carlos and his brother José Antonio Carrillo in 1843. They gave the island to Carlos' daughters, Manuela Carrillo Jones and Francisca Carrillo Thompson.
