Hylton Jolliffe (28 February 1773 – 13 January 1843)[1] was an English politician.

Joliffe was the eldest son of William Jolliffe (1745–1802) of Merstham and his wife Eleanor, daughter and heir of Sir Richard Hylton, 5th Baronet, of Hayton Castle in Cumberland. He was educated at Westminster School and at Lincoln's Inn. In 1804 he married Elizabeth Rose, the illegitimate daughter of Robert Shirley, 7th Earl Ferrers. The couple had no children, but Joliffe fathered two illegitimate sons.[2]

He was a Member of Parliament (MP) for the borough of Petersfield for most of the period between 1796 and 1834.[2][3] His father represented the same borough for 34 years, and the two served alongside each other from 1796–1797.[1]

    F.W.S. Craig's British parliamentary election results 1832–1885 and Henry Stooks Smith's The Parliaments of England from 1715 to 1847 record the member seated after the petition as William Jolliffe. However, the History of Parliament's article on Petersfield borough note in footnote 42 that both the official returns (PP (1878), lxii, pt. ii, 348) and the 1833 petition (CJ, lxxxviii. 13-14) confirm that the member seated was Hylton Jolliffe. This is as reported in the Times article on the petition committee's report: "Petersfield Election Committee", The Times, 7 March 1833, page 4.
