Sir George Barclay (c. 1636–1710) was a Scottish army officer who headed a Jacobite assassination plot against King William III of England in 1696. The plotters intended to ambush the king at Turnham Green in London on returning from a hunting party. The plot was betrayed to the government, and nine members were executed, though Barclay escaped to France.
