William Henry Pole-Carew (30 July 1811 – 20 January 1888) was a Cornish politician.
Pole-Carew was born in Eaton Place, Marylebone in 1811. His parents were Reginald Pole-Carew and Hon. Caroline Anne Lyttelton, daughter of William Lyttelton, 1st Baron Lyttelton. He was educated at Charterhouse School from 1824 to 1828, and then at Oriel College, Oxford, gaining a BA in 1833 and an MA in 1864.
He served as Conservative Member of Parliament for East Cornwall from 1845 until 1852, and unsuccessfully contested Liskeard in 1859. He served as High Sheriff of Cornwall in 1854–1855, and as Recorder of East Looe from 1857 to 1886.
Pole-Carew joined the Canterbury Association on 3 June 1848. He was friends with John Robert Godley, and the Godley family stayed with him at Antony House while awaiting departure of the Lady Nugent for Lyttelton.
