General Sir Lovell Benjamin Badcock Lovell, KCB, KH (born Badcock; 1786 – 11 March 1861) was a lieutenant-general in the British Army. He was a descendant of Sir Salathiel Lovell, through the marriage of Lovell's daughter, Jane Lovell, to Richard Badcock, the eldest son of William Badcock, a London goldsmith.
Educated at Eton, Badcock commenced his distinguished military career in the Royal Bucks Militia. He fought under General Auchmuty at Montevideo in 1807 and went through the Peninsula War with the 14th Light Dragoons until 1813, being awarded the Peninsular Medal with eleven clasps; a greater number than was given to any other officer of cavalry.
On retirement he became also Colonel of the 12th Lancers. He died at Brighton on 11 March 1861, having never married. He and his younger brother, Admiral William Stanhope Badcock, changed their name of Badcock to Lovell by sign-manual in 1840.
There is no known familial relationship between Lovell Benjamin Badcock and another prominent nineteenth century British Army general bearing the same surname - General Sir Alexander Robert Badcock.
