Edmund Hooke Wilson Bellairs (1823–1898) was a member of the New Zealand Legislative Council.

Bellairs was born in Norfolk and arrived in Dunedin in 1852.[1] He was a member of the Legislative Council in Auckland from 31 December 1853 to 17 June 1856, when his membership lapsed due to absence.[2] He left New Zealand about 1856 and afterwards lived mainly in France. Copies and reproductions of Bellairs' pencil drawings and watercolours of historic interest are held at the Hocken Collections.[1]
