Kinoshita Iesada (木下 家定?, 1543 – October 4, 1608) was a samurai of the Sengoku through early Edo periods. His family name means "under the tree." His brother-in-law was the general who would become known as Toyotomi Hideyoshi.
At the time of the Battle of Sekigahara, Iesada was lord of Himeji han and held 25,000 koku of income. However, due to his distinction in guarding his sister O-ne (Hideyoshi's wife), Tokugawa Ieyasu rewarded him, and he was enfeifed at Ashimori han in Bitchu Province following the battle.
