Theodore Davie (Brixton, London March 22, 1852 – March 7, 1898 Victoria, British Columbia) was a British Columbia lawyer, politician and jurist. He practiced law in Cassiar and Nanaimo before settling in Victoria and becoming a leading criminal lawyer. He was the brother of Alexander Edmund Batson Davie. Theodore Davie was first elected to the provincial legislature in 1882. In 1889 he became Attorney-General under Premier John Robson and succeeded Robson in 1892.
Davie's government passed a Redistribution Bill to give the mainland of the province greater representation in the legislature. His government also provided financial incentives to the railways in an effort to stimulate the economy. The Davie government also approved the construction of the province's parliament buildings in Victoria despite pressure to move the capital to the mainland.
