Henry Fenwick (1820 – 16 April 1868)[1] was a British Liberal Party politician.

He first stood for election to the House of Commons in December 1852, when he was unsuccessful at a by-election for the City of Durham.[2] He was elected as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Sunderland at a by-election in January 1855,[3] and held the seat until February 1866, when he was appointed as Civil Lord of the Admiralty and was defeated in the resulting by-election.[3]
