Hon. Andrew Foley (c.1748 – 28 July 1818) was the third son of Thomas, 1st Lord Foley.

Unlike his two elder brothers, he did not greatly dissipate the family wealth. His father devised to him estates in and around Newent, Gloucestershire that had been in the family for several generations. He was a trustee of his father's will, together with his father's younger brother, the Very Reverend Robert Foley, Dean of Worcester.

He married Elizabeth, daughter and heir of Boulter Tomlinson, and left two sons, Thomas and William Andrew (neither of whom married) and four daughters.

Andrew Foley sat continuously as member of Parliament for Droitwich, long represented by members of his family, from 1774 until his death.
