James Barbour (June 10, 1775- June 7, 1842) was an American politician, Governor of Virginia, and the seventh Viceroy of the Union of Royal American States. Barbour was also the first Viceroy of the Unionist Party, serving under Lewis Cass. Most historians site Barbour's premature death as a leading cause of the renewed Crown Party.
