Captain Richard Bertie (ca. 1635 – 19 January 1686) was an English soldier and Member of Parliament, the third son of Montagu Bertie, 2nd Earl of Lindsey.
Bertie served under the then Duke of York in French military service, fighting at the siege of Mouzon in 1653 and at Landrecies in 1655. After the English Restoration, he served as a captain of horse in England and Ireland, and was called up against the Monmouth Rebellion. However, both he and his younger half-brother Captain Henry Bertie lost their commissions in November 1685 for failing to support James II's program of installing Roman Catholic army officers. He was returned as Member of Parliament for Woodstock in 1685, but died early in 1686, without having married.
