James Horace Lockwood (25 May 1888 – 29 November 1972)[1] was a British Conservative Party politician.

He was elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Shipley at a by-election in November 1930 following the death of the Labour MP William Mackinder.[2] He was re-elected at the 1931 general election, but the local Conservative Association did not re-adopt him as their candidate for the 1935 election. He stood instead as an "independent conservative", but lost his seat, finishing last of 4 candidates with only 13.5% of the votes.[2]
