Ebenezer Foster (– before 1792) was a judge in New Jersey and political figure in New Brunswick. He represented King's in the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick from 1785 until his death in office.[1]

In New Jersey, he had served as a justice of the peace, a judge for the Court of oyer and terminer and a judge in the Court of Common Pleas for Middlesex County and as a school trustee for Woodbridge Township. Sometime around 1776, Foster was arrested as a British sympathizer; he was freed by the British in December of that year. He left Staten Island for Nova Scotia in 1783 and later settled in Kingston Parish, Kings County, New Brunswick.[2]
