Charles Capper (1822 – 21 March 1869)[1] was a British Conservative Party politician. He was a Member of Parliament (MP) from 1866 to 1868.

He contested the borough of Sandwich at the 1865 general election, but was unsuccessful.[2] However, he won the seat at a by-election in May 1866 after the resignation of the Liberal MP Lord Clarence Paget.[3] He held the seat until 1868, and did not stand again at the 1868 general election.[2]
