Sir Hubert Edward Henry Jerningham, KCMG, DL (18 October 1842 – 3 April 1914) was British Liberal Party politician and Governor of Mauritius 1892-1897, then Governor of Trinidad and Tobago between 1897 and 1900.
In June 1897 he was appointed Governor of Trinidad and Tobago, serving as such until December 1900. While he was Governor, the Trinidad Government Railway was extended from Cunupia to Tabaquite. The railway junction formed by this extension was named Jerningham Junction. He also instituted an award for the top student in the Island Scholarship examinations, a gold medal called the Jerningham Medal (today known as the President's Medal). Jerningham advised the Colonial Office to suspend the charter of the Borough of Port of Spain in 1898 following a dispute with the Borough Council. The borough charter was suspended on 1 January 1899; the suspension remained in effect until 1914. This action made Jerningham very unpopular with the population.
Jerningham was appointed a deputy lieutenant of Northumberland on 21 May 1901, after his return to the United Kingdom. He was received in a customary stepping down audience by King Edward VII in January 1902. He settled at Longridge Towers, where he had erected a stately home, said to among the largest private houses in that part of the country.
Jerningham married in 1874 Annie Liddell, daughter of Edward Liddell, of Benton park, Northumberland. She was the widow of Charles Mather, and had inherited the Longridge Towers estate near Berwick-upon-Tweed and other property from her first husband. Lady Jerningham died at Longridge Towers on 9 October 1902.
