Mabel Geraldine Woodruffe Peacock (9 May 1856– 17 July 1920) was an English folklorist.
Peacock was the daughter of Lucy and Edward Peacock F.S.A. of Bottesford Manor, Brigg, Lincolnshire, and later of Kirton-in-Lindsey. She made collections of folklore in this region and published them in journals and her books.
She retired to Norfolk in 1918 and died of tuberculosis in 1920. Mabel Peacock is buried in Grayingham, Lincolnshire churchyard.
