Weston Patrick is a small village and civil parish in Hampshire. It is in the civil parish of Tunworth.

Weston Patrick is divided from the neighbouring parish of Weston Corbett by the road leading to the village of Upton Grey.
The manor of Weston Patrick, which probably derives its name from its 13th-century owner, 'Patrick de Chaworth', was held of the king in chief by the service of suit at the Odiham Hundred. It is not mentioned in the Domesday Survey, and was then probably included in the extensive manor of Odiham. The first known owner of the manor was William Briwere, and it was probably granted to him by King Richard I or King John, with both of whom he was in great favour. The manor passed from William in the same way as King's Somborne and became part of the Duchy of Lancaster. It remained in the Crown till 1546–47, when it was granted by Henry VIII to Lawrence Herward.
