Morgan Morgans (October 23, 1806 – May 20, 1889) was a member of the Connecticut Senate representing the 12th District from 1863 to 1865 and a member of the Connecticut House of Representatives from 1862 to 1863. In 1852, he was the Whig Party candidate for mayor of New York City.

Morgans was the leader of the Whig Party in the Seventh Ward of New York.

He was elected assistant alderman in 1849, and represented the ward as alderman from 1850 to 1851. During his term as alderman, he was president of the board of aldermen, and was Acting Mayor during the temporary absence of Ambrose Kingsland.

In 1852, he was nominated by the Whigs as a candidate for mayor of New York City, but lost to Jacob Aaron Westervelt.
