Edward Gibbon Wakefield (20 March 1796 – 16 May 1862) was a British politician, the driving force behind much of the early colonisation of South Australia, and later New Zealand. Wakefield, who in 1816 married Eliza Pattle (1799 – 1820), was the eldest son of Edward Wakefield (1774 – 1854) and Susanna Crash (1767 – 1816). He is mentioned and criticised in Chapter 33 of Karl Marx's Das Kapital (Volume 1)
