Vice Admiral Henry Killigrew (c.1652 – 9 November 1712) was a Royal Navy officer and Member of Parliament.[1]

He was the son of the playwright Henry Killigrew. He was active in the Royal Navy during the 1670s and 1680s, and was promoted to vice-admiral in 1689, but was suspected of Jacobite sympathies and not given a sea command after 1693. He was however appointed a Lord of the Admiralty in that year.

He was Member of Parliament for Stockbridge from 1702 to 1705 and for St Albans from 1705 to 1708, initially as a member of the Parliament of England, and then (following the Acts of Union in 1707) as a member of the Parliament of Great Britain.

He married Lucy, the daughter of Thomas Jervoise of Herriard, Hampshire, with whom he had a son and 3 daughters.
