Sir Godfrey Dalrymple Dalrymple-White, 1st Baronet (6 July 1866 – 1 April 1954), known as Godfrey White until 1926, was a Conservative Party politician in the United Kingdom.

Dalrymple-White was the son of General Sir Henry Dalrymple White and his second wife Alice Elizabeth (née Malcolm), and was educated at Wellington College, Berkshire, and the Royal Military College, Sandhurst. He achieved the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel in the Grenadier Guards and fought in the Second Boer War and in the First World War. Dalrymple-White was also involved in politics and sat as Member of Parliament (MP) for Southport from January 1910 to 1923 and from 1924 to 1931. In 1926 he assumed by deed poll the additional surname of Dalrymple and the same year he was created a Baronet, of High Mark in the County of Wigtown.

Dalrymple-White married the Hon. Catherine Mary, daughter of Byron Cary, 12th Viscount of Falkland, in 1912. He died in April 1954, aged 87, and was succeeded in the baronetcy by his son Henry.
