George Hastings, 1st Earl of Huntingdon (1488 – 24 March 1544) was an English nobleman.
George Hastings, born in 1488 at
Ashby-de-la-Zouch, was the son of Edward Hastings, 2nd Baron Hastings, and Mary Hungerford, daughter and heiress of Sir Thomas Hungerford of Rowden, Wiltshire, by Anne Percy, daughter of Henry Percy, 2nd Earl of Northumberland, and Eleanor Neville, daughter of Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland. 
Hastings was created a
Knight of the Bath in November 1501, and succeeded to his father's title between 4 and 15 November 1506. In 1513 he served with King Henry VIII's army in France, and was present when both Therouanne and Tournai were taken by the English forces. He was present at the 1520 meeting between Henry VIII and Francis I of France now known as Field of the Cloth of Gold and when Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor visited England in 1522. 
He was created
Earl of Huntingdon on 8 December 1529. On the same day his eldest son, Francis, gained a seat at the so-called  Reformation Parliament. In 1536 he held a command in the forces which put down the rebellion called the Pilgrimage of Grace. 
Huntingdon was a close friend of the King.
His wife,  Anne, was the King's mistress in 1510, and possibly until 1513. She was later prosecuted for adultery with another of her husband's friends,  William Compton.
