Ker Baillie Hamilton (13 July 1804 – 6 February 1889) colonial governor born in Cleveland, England and died in Tunbridge Wells, England.

Hamilton was educated at the Royal Military College, Woolwich where he went on to serve in Mauritius and the Cape of Good Hope. In 1846 became governor of Grenada. Beginning in 1851 he was the administrator of Barbados and the Windward Islands. In 1852 Hamilton was appointed governor of Newfoundland.
