Harvey Christian Combe (1752 – 4 July 1818) was an English Whig politician. He was the eldest surviving son of Harvey Combe, attorney, of Andover, Hampshire.

He was elected an Alderman of London in 1790 and Lord Mayor of London in 1799. He was appointed Sheriff of London for 1791-92.

He held the seat for 21 years, until he resigned from the House of Commons in 1817 by taking the Chiltern Hundreds.

He died the following year, aged about 66. He had married his cousin Alice Christian, the daughter of Boyce Tree, corn factor, of London, with whom he had four sons and six daughters. In 1806 he had bought Cobham Park estate in Surrey where he lived until his death. The estate was left to his son Harvey Combe junior.

    I think that both here and in England there are two schools of thought—those who would be altruistic in regard to the Germans, hoping that by loving kindness to make them Christian again—and those who would adopt a much tougher attitude. Most decidedly I belong to the latter school, for though I am not blood-thirsty, I want the Germans to know that this time at least they have definitely lost the war.
