Charles Hamilton Teeling (1778–1850) was an Irish journalist and writer from Lisburn, County Antrim, Ulster.

He was the younger brother of Bartholomew Teeling and in 1802 switched careers from a linen bleacher to journalism. Teeling established the Northern Herald and the Ulster Magazine in Belfast, and the Newry Examiner in Newry.[1]

His Personal Narrative of the "Irish Rebellion" of 1798 (1828), his Sequel to Personal Narrative of the "Irish Rebellion" of 1798 (1832), and his History and Consequences of the Battle of the Diamond (1835) are amongst his most notable works.

He spent much of his later life in Dublin where he died in 1850.[2]
