Major Ernest Gambier-Parry (25 October 1853 – 15 April 1936) was a British military officer who participated in an expedition to the Sudan to avenge the grisly death of a renowned general in 1885.

However, the wounds he sustained in that campaign ended his military career.Gambier-Parry was also known for his work as an author, musician, and artist.

He succeeded to the manor at Highnam Court following the death of his half-brother Sir Hubert Parry.In addition, he preserved and archived the art collection that had been amassed by his father Thomas Gambier Parry; the masterpieces were eventually bequeathed to the Courtauld Institute of Art.
