Admiral Edward Vernon ("Old Grog") (12 November 1684 – 30 October 1757) was an English naval officer. Vernon served as MP on three occasions.

Mount Vernon, the home of the first American president George Washington, was named after Vernon, since Washington's elder brother served under Edward Vernon, and gave the estate his name
