James Butler (1680–17 May 1741), was a British politician. He was a Member of Parliament for Arundel (9 May 1705 – 4 May 1708)[1] and Sussex (17 Feb 1715 – 5 Apr 1722).[2]

James Butler was the son of James Butler of Amberley Castle. He may have been educated at Trinity Hall, Cambridge.[3] He bought the estate of Warminghurst in 1702, from William Penn.[4] A Whig supporter, he entered parliament for Arundel (as his father had done before him). His son John was also an MP.[5]
