Jonathan Belcher (8 January 1681/231 August 1757) was colonial governor of the British provinces of Massachusetts Bay, New Hampshire, and New Jersey.
Historian Robert Zemsky wrote of Belcher, "[He] was almost a caricature of a New England Yankee: arrogant, vindictive, often impetuous despite a most solemn belief in rational action and calculated maneuver."
