Charles Hamilton Teeling (1778-1848) was an Irish journalist and writer from Lisburn, County Antrim. He was the younger brother of Bartholomew Teeling (d. 1798), a leader of the Irish forces during the Irish Rebellion of 1798.

In 1796, at the age of 17, his political activities, particularly his involvement with the United Irishmen, brought his arrest for high treason. However, the following year he was released on bail without being brought to trial and remained free during the rebellion of 1798.

In 1802 he switched from a career as a linen bleacher to become a journalist and political organiser, acting as editor and proprietor of the Northern Herald and the Ulster Magazine in Belfast, as well as establishing the Newry Examiner in Newry. He died on 14 August 1848.

His memoirs of the politics of his youth are recorded in three parts: Personal Narrative of the “Irish rebellion” of 1798 (1828), Sequel to Personal narrative of the Irish rebellion of 1798 (1832) and Observations on the History and consequences of the Battle of the Diamond (1838). They are among his most notable works and are often cited, being regarded as valuable witness testimonies.
