Edward Chichester, 4th Marquess of Donegall (11 June 1799 – 20 January 1889) was a clergyman who late in life became an Irish peer. Until 1871 he was known as the Rev. Lord Edward Chichester.
As a younger son, he became a priest of the Church of Ireland and served as Dean of Raphoe from 1831 to 1871. In 1853, his older brother's only surviving son, Frederick Richard Chichester, Earl of Belfast (1827–1853), died unmarried in Naples, leaving Lord Edward as the heirs presumptive to the marquessate. In 1883, at the age of 84, he finally succeeded his 86-year old elder brother and became the fourth Marquess of Donegall. He died six years later in St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex, and was buried in Kensal Green Cemetery, London.
A large part of the Donegall estates were not entailed and in 1883 were inherited by the 3rd Marquess's only surviving child, Harriet Augusta Anna Seymourina, the wife of Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 8th Earl of Shaftesbury.
