Ezra Baker (c. 1765 – ?) was a U.S. Representative from New Jersey.

Born in Tuckerton, New Jersey, Baker moved with his parents to the Province of East Jersey about 1765. He was educated for the medical profession and commenced practice. He moved to Absecon, New Jersey, in 1799. He served as collector of customs at the port of Great Egg Harbor, New Jersey, February 18, 1813 to March 1, 1815.

Baker was elected as a Democratic-Republican to the Fourteenth Congress (March 4, 1815 – March 3, 1817). He moved westward to the "Wabash country" with his sons in 1818 and engaged in the culture of castor beans for the New Orleans market; he died there at an unknown date.
