Patrick George Hamilton Carvill (1839 – 10 January 1924)[1] was an Irish Liberal and nationalist politician. He was a Member of Parliament (MP) for Newry from 1892 to 1906, taking his seat as an Irish Parliamentary Party member of the House of Commons of what was then the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.

Carvill first stood for Parliament at the 1880 general election, when he was a Liberal candidate in Newry, but he lost the seat by a margin of 5% to a Conservative candidate.[2] He did not stand again until the general election in October 1892, when he won the seat as an Anti-Parnellite nationalist, defeating both a Unionist and a Parnellite opponent.[3] He was re-elected in 1895 with a wide margin, and when the Irish Parliamentary Party (IPP) reunited for the 1900 general election was returned unopposed as an IPP candidate.[4] He lost the seat at the general election in January 1906, when he stood as an Independent Nationalist, and was defeated by John Joseph Mooney, the IPP candidate and outgoing MP for South County Dublin.[5]
