Henry Poley (5 January 1654 – 7 August 1707) was an English lawyer and Member of Parliament. He was the son of Sir Edmund Poley (1619–1671) who was MP for Bury St Edmunds, and brother of Edmund Poley the diplomat.
Poley matriculated at Jesus College, Cambridge in 1672, and graduated B.A. in 1673, having been a fellow commoner since 1670. He was then a Fellow of the college to 1675. He entered Gray's Inn in 1669, and the Middle Temple in 1672, being called to the bar in 1678.
