Henry Musgrave Blaiklock (26 April 1790 – 9 October 1843) was an English architect and civil engineer who came to Canada with extended family in the 1820s to pursue his career.

Blaiklock and his family arrived in Quebec around 1824. They were influenced in their decision to emigrate by an invitation from Governor George Ramsay to whom they were related. He and his brother George had quick success in their architectural business, no doubt aided by the governor's patronage.
