Daniel Gerald Somerville (26 October 1879 – 1 July 1938)[1] was a Conservative Party politician in the United Kingdom.

He was elected at the 1922 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for Barrow-in-Furness. He was re-elected in 1923, but was narrowly defeated at the 1924 election in a straight contest with the Labour Party candidate John Bromley.[2]

He returned to the House of Commons at the 1929 general election as MP for the north-west London constituency of Willesden East. He held that seat until his death in 1938, aged 58.[2] Somerville died on the same day as his predecessor as MP for Willesden East, George Frederick Stanley.
