Sir Montagu Lowther Chapman (19 December 1808 – 17 May 1852) was an Irish landowner and Member of Parliament (MP).

He was born at Killua Castle, Westmeath, the son of Sir Thomas Chapman, 2nd Baronet and graduated from Trinity College, Dublin. He succeeded his father to the baronetcy and the Killua estate in 1837.

He was elected Member of Parliament for Westmeath in the UK Parliament in 1830, holding the seat until 1841, after which it passed to his brother. In that same year he visited Australia and on 14 June 1842 was granted title to a large estate near Adelaide, which he leased out as smaller farms. Many of the farms were leased to tenants from his own Irish estate, from where 120 people emigrated to Australia. Originally named Montagu's Farm, the area is now known as Gepp's Cross.

He was appointed High Sheriff of Westmeath for 1844.

He died in 1852 on a sea voyage from Melbourne to Sydney, when the vessel in which he was sailing disappeared without trace. He had never married and his Irish and Australian estates were inherited by his younger brother Benjamin.
