The Liberal politician James Lawrence was Lord Mayor of London from 1868 to 1869.

He was elected Member of Parliament for Lambeth at a by-election in 1865, but lost the seat again at the following 1865 general election. In 1868 he became Lord Mayor of London, shortly before he was re-elected for Lambeth at the 1868 general election. He was created a baronet in November 1869 on the opening of Holborn Viaduct and Blackfriars Bridge. Lawrence held the seat at Lambeth until 1885
