Archibald Brabazon Sparrow Acheson, 4th Earl of Gosford KP (2 August 1841 – 11 April 1922) was a British Peer. The son of Archibald Acheson, 3rd Earl of Gosford, he was born at Worlingham Hall, Suffolk, in 1841, and succeeded to the earldom upon the death of his father in 1864. Since there are two United Kingdom peerages subsumed in that Irish Earldom, he was entitled to an automatic seat in the House of Lords. He was Lord Lieutenant of Armagh from 1883 to 1920, and served as Vice-Chamberlain of the Household of Queen Alexandra from 1901. He was Honorary Colonel of the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Irish Fusiliers from 1899, and Vice-Admiral of Ulster. Gosford died in London in 1922, aged 80, and was cremated at Golders Green Crematorium.

He married Lady Louisa Augusta Beatrice Montagu, daughter of William Montagu, 7th Duke of Manchester, at London on 10 August 1876, with whom he had the following children:
