James Henry Wootton-Davies (1884–1964) was Conservative Party MP for Heywood and Radcliffe in Lancashire. When his predecessor died in 1940 this led to a by-election, and because of the wartime truce he was returned unopposed. He lost the seat to Labour at the 1945 general election. He was the chief chemist at Lunts of Port Sunlight near Liverpool. He changed his name from Davies to Wootton-Davies after marrying Shirley Wotton (who added an extra o in Wotton because she felt it was too common) thus becoming Wootton-Davies.
