Hans Hamilton (ca. 1758 – December 1822) was an Anglo-Irish Member of Parliament.

Hamilton sat for Dublin County in the Irish House of Commons from 1798 until the Act of Union in 1801 and was then appointed High Sheriff of County Dublin for 1803-04. He was subsequently elected to the British House of Commons for County Dublin, a seat he held until his death in December 1822. His son, James Hans Hamilton, and grandson, Ion Trant Hamilton, also represented this constituency in Parliament. The latter was raised to the peerage as Baron HolmPatrick in 1897.
