Gilbert Boone was an English lawyer and politician who sat in the House of Commons in 1640.

Boone was the son of John Boone (or Bohun) of Nottingham. He became a serjeant-at-law at Nottingham and lived at Hockerton.[1] In April 1640, he was elected Member of Parliament for Nottingham in the Short Parliament.[2] In 1642 Boone was in difficulties with the authorities. The people of Nottingham had submitted a petition to parliament, and Boone had intervened to hinder its submission. He was sent for as a delinquent, by the Serjeant at Arms of the House of Commons, and put out of his commission as Justice of the Peace.[3] He was placed in custody, and on 3 May 1642 he was bailed.[4]
