Robert Henry Hurst (1817 – 12 February 1905) was an English Liberal Party politician. He was Member of Parliament (MP) for Horsham from 1865 to 1868, and from 1875 to 1876.

Hurst was elected to the House of Commonsmarker on his first attempt at the 1865 general election, winning the seat previously held by his father Robert Henry Hurst. He was defeated at the 1868 by the Conservative Party candidate John Aldridge, but petitions were lodged against both candidates and Aldridge chose not to defend his claim so Hurst was declared elected in 1869.

He was defeated in the 1874 general election by the Conservative William Vesey-FitzGerald, but when Vesey-FitzGerald was appointed as Chief Charity Commissioner in 1875, he was required by the rules at the time to seek re-election. Hurst won the resulting by-election in December 1875, but after a petition the by-election result was declared void. Hurst did not stand for Parliamentmarker again.
