Savile Finch (c. 1736 – 20 September 1788) was an English politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1757 to 1780.

Finch was the only son of the Honourable John Finch, younger son of Heneage Finch, 1st Earl of Aylesford. His mother was Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of John Savile, of Methley-hall, Yorkshire.[1]

Finch sat as a Member of Parliament for Maidstone from 1757 to 1761 and for Malton from 1761 to 1780.[2]

Finch married Judith Fullerton, daughter of John Fullerton. They had no children and Finch bequeathed the estates to his wife. After his death, she lived at Thrybergh for twenty years and when she died in 1803 left the estate to the Fullerton family.[3]
