Henry George Carroll, QC (January 31, 1865 – August 20, 1939) was a Canadian politician, jurist and the 16th Lieutenant Governor of Quebec from 1929 to 1934 and the last anglophone to serve in that position to the present day.

Born in Kamouraska, Canada East, Carroll studied law at Laval University, was called to the bar in 1889, and was created a Queen's Counsel in 1899.

A Liberal, he was first elected to the Canadian House of Commons in 1891 representing Kamouraska and was re-elected in 1896 and 1900. He was appointed Solicitor General of Canada in 1902 and served until 1904 at a time when the position was not a cabinet office but was part of the ministry. He left politics to become a judge in the Quebec Superior Court in 1904 and was appointed to the Court of King's Bench in 1908. In 1912 he served as chairman of Quebec's Royal Commission examining the alcohol trade and subsequently served as vice-president province's liquor commission from 1921 to 1929 when he was appointed lieutenant-governor.
