Sir Joseph Walton, 1st Baronet, DL, JP (1849 – 1923) was an English coalowner and Liberal Party politician. He took a deep interest in foreign affairs and in the development of the British Empire. He travelled extensively in India, Burma, Africa, America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, various British Protectorates, as well as visiting China, Japan, Persia, Mesopotamia, Russia and the Balkans. As a result of his interest in the Far East, Walton gained the soubriquet "The Member for China" in Parliament. This title appears to be his only title.
