Sir Charles Alfred Elliott (8 December 1835 – 28 May 1911), had a career as a senior administrator in British India before returning to England where he became a member of the London School Board.
Born in Brighton, he was educated at Harrow School, and Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1856 he won a place in the East India Company's civil service. In 1887 he became a Knight Commander in the Order of the Star of India, was Lieutenant-Governor of Bengal from December 1890 - December 1895.
He returned to London, and in November 1896 was co-opted to fill a casual vacancy in the representation of Tower Hamlets on the London School Board. He was re-elected twice, remaining a member of the board until its abolition in 1904.
The London County Council took over the activities of the abolished school board and Elliott was co-opted onto the council's education committee.
He died at his home, Fernwood, Wimbledon Park, aged 75.
