James Aldrich (1810–1856) was an editor and minor poet.

Aldrich was born in Mattituck, New York, apparently 14 July 1810, and was married in 1836. He was a merchant and editor. He founded the short-lived New York Literary Gazette in 1839, and later in 1842–44 worked as an editor on the New World (New York).[1] Much of his poetry was published in his Literary Gazette, and not brought together in a collection until after his death, when his daughter circulated it privately.[2] His poem A Death-Bed is often republished.[1]

He died 9 September 1856.
