Richard Shaw (1825 – 19 January 1876)[1] was a British Liberal Party politician.

At the 1868 general election, Shaw was elected as the first Member of Parliament (MP) for the newly-enfranchised parliamentary borough of Burnley[2] in Lancashire. He was re-elected in 1874, and held the seat until his death in 1876, aged 50.
