Wilson Noble (21 November 1854 – 1 November 1917)[1] was a Conservative Party politician in England who served from 1886 to 1895 as Member of Parliament (MP) for Hastings in East Sussex.

He unsuccessfully contested the Hastings constituency at the 1885 general election, losing narrowly to the sitting Liberal MP Sir Thomas Brassey. However, at the 1886 general election Brassey stood down from the House of Commons and was elevated to the peerage as Baron Brassey of Bulkeley. Noble won the seat, and was re-elected in 1892.

He retired from the Commons at the 1895 general election.[2]
