Elbridge Gerry Lapham (October 18, 1814 – January 8, 1890) was a U.S. Senator from New York from 1881-1885.

He was member of the constitutional convention of New York in 1867. He was elected as a Republican to the Forty-fourth United States Congress and to the three succeeding Congresses and served from March 4, 1875, until his resignation July 29, 1881, having been elected Senator. He was one of the managers appointed by the House of Representatives in 1876 to conduct the impeachment proceedings against ex-Secretary of War William W. Belknap.

He was elected as a Republican to the United States Senate on July 22, 1881, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Roscoe Conkling and served from August 2, 1881, to March 3, 1885. He was not a candidate for reelection. Elbridge served as the chairman of the Committee on Fish and Fisheries (Forty-eighth United States Congress).
