Francis Gregor (1 June 1760 – 12 July 1815) was an MP for the County of Cornwall, elected 10 July 1790, "after a severe and protracted contest" [1] and subsequently, unopposed in 1796 and 1802 [2]. He was High Sheriff of Cornwall in 1788.

He was born on 1 June 1760 in Trewarthenick, Cornwall, the son of Francis Gregor (Born 1728) [3] and Mary Copley. His brother was Rev. William Gregor, the noted mineralogist [1]

He died 12 July 1815 at the age of 55. At his death, his brother, William, inherited Trewarthenick.

His Works were published by Thomas Flindell of Exeter, by subscription, in 1816 [4]. The book was reviewed in The Augustan Review in 1816. The review includes substantial extracts from the book and an obituary notice (stating that he studied at Cambridge and the Inns of Court) [5].
