Sir George Dallas, 1st Baronet (6 April 1758 – 14 January 1833) was a British politician and poet. He was created baronet, of Harley Street in the County of Middlesex, on 31 July 1798. He succeeded William Hamilton Nisbet as Member of Parliament for Newport, Isle of Wight in 1800, holding the position until 1802. Although he lived in England, he came from a Scottish family.

Dallas and his brother Robert were educated first at James Elphinstone's school in Kensington, and then in Geneva, by the pastor Chauvet. Robert went on to be the MP for Mitchell and a judge.

On 11 June 1788, Dallas married Margaret Catherine Blackwood, the daughter of Sir John Blackwood, 2nd Baronet and Dorcas Stevenson, Baroness Dufferin and Clandeboye.[1] Their son was Sir Robert Charles Dallas, 2nd Baronet (23 December 1804 - 2 August 1874). Their daughter, Marianne Dallas, married Sir Peter Parker, 2nd Baronet.
