Samuel Charles Allsopp, 2nd Baron Hindlip (24 March 1842 – 12 July 1897), was a British businessman and Conservative politician who sat in the House of Commons between 1873 and 1887 when he inherited the peerage.

Allsopp was the eldest son of Henry Allsopp, 1st Baron Hindlip, head of the brewery firm of Samuel Allsopp & Sons, of Burton-on-Trent and his wife Elizabeth Tongue. He was educated at Harrow School and Trinity College, Cambridge[1] and was a lieutenant in the Derbyshire Yeomanry. In 1880, he took over the running of the brewery. He was also deputy chairman of the Great Northern Railway.[2]

In 1873, Allsopp was elected Member of Parliament for Staffordshire East and held the seat until 1880. He was elected MP for Taunton in 1882. In 1887 he succeeded his father as second Baron Hindlip and gave up his seat when he entered the House of Lords.[3]

Lord Hindlip died in July 1897, aged 55

Hindlip married Georgiana Millicent, daughter of Charles Rowland Palmer-Moorewood, in 1868. He was succeeded in his titles by his son Charles. Lady Hindlip died in 1939. His brother George Higginson Allsopp was MP for Worcester, while other brothers Frederic Allsopp and Herbert Allsopp were first-class cricketers.
