George Anderson (1819 – 4 November 1896)[1] was a Liberal Party politician in the United Kingdom.

He was elected at the 1868 general election as one of the three Members of Parliament (MPs) for Glasgow,[2] taking the extra seat created for the city by the Representation of the People (Scotland) Act 1868.

Anderson held the seat until he resigned in March 1885 by becoming Steward of the Manor of Northstead,[3] to take up the post of Master of the Mint in Melbourne, Australia.[2]
