Richard Terrick (1710 – 1777) was a Church of England clergyman and bishop of London from 1764 to 1777.

Terrick graduated with a BA from Twickenham from 1749. He became Bishop of Peterborough in 1757 through the influence of William Cavendish, 4th Duke of Devonshire, briefly Prime Minister. Horace Walpole, who disliked him, said he lacked ability, save "a sonorous delivery and an assiduity of backstairs address". He transferred allegiance to John Stuart, 3rd Earl of Bute.[2]
