Richard Abell (c.1688 – aft. March 1744) was a British politician.
He entered Parliament at a by-election in 1720 for Richmond, Yorkshire as a Whig, in the interest of the Duke of Wharton. He transferred to Aylesbury in 1722. He did not stand for Aylesbury again in 1727. In 1728, he sold the manor of East Claydon to the Viscount Fermanagh, retaining a life interest in the property.
