Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, 4th Baronet, CB, PC (24 September 1835 – 19 May 1910), born Henry Fletcher, was a Member of Parliament in the United Kingdom.

The eldest son and second child of Sir Henry Fletcher, 3rd Baronet (born 1807) and Emily Maria Browne, he succeeded to the baronetcy on 6 September 1851 upon the death of his father. In 1903, he had his name changed under Royal Licence to Henry Aubrey-Fletcher to reflect his inheritance from the Aubrey estate.

Before his service in Parliament, he held various posts in the military. He represented the Conservatives in the House of Commons as the Member of Parliament for Horsham from 1880 to 1885 and Lewes from 1885 until his death in 1910. He was made a Companion of the Order of the Bath in 1900, and a Privy Counsellor in December 1901.[1]

The town of Worthing conferred upon him the honorary freedom of the borough in October 1901, for services rendered to the town.[2]

He died without any children and was thus succeeded to the baronetcy by his younger brother, Lancelot Aubrey-Fletcher who also changed his name.
