Henry Brandon, 1st Earl of Lincoln (ca. 1523 – 1 March 1534 Southwark ) was the youngest child and second son born to Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk and Mary Tudor, Queen of France, Thus Henry Brandon was nephew to Henry VIII of England.

It was not unusual in Tudor times to name a child after a deceased sibling.
