James Edward "Ned" Wyatt (September 24, 1860 – May 4, 1932) was a lawyer and political figure on P.E.I. He represented 5th Prince in the Provincial Assembly from 1908 to 1915 as a Conservative. Wyatt was born in Charlottetown and was educated at Prince of Wales College. He studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1883 and set up practice in Summerside with his brother-in-law J.E. Lefurgey. Wyatt's daughter, Wanda, would become the first female law student in the province. Her father supported a bill in the legislature to allow women to study law and sponsored her application to law school.
