Walter Burrell (15 April 1777 – 7 April 1831) [1] was an English Tory[2] politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1812 to 1831.

Burrell was educated at Westminster School where he may have taken part in the first school cricket match in 1794 between Westminster and Charterhouse School.[3]

Burrell was elected at the 1812 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for Sussex.[2] He was re-elected three times,[2] and held the seat until his death shortly before the 1831 general election
