Sir David Storey (18 August 1856 – 27 July 1924) was an Australian politician.

He was born in County Monaghan, Ireland, to farmer Robert Storey and Margaret Colvin. After working for Lindsay Brothers Ltd he emigrated to Sydney in 1879, entering business as a department manager. He entered into his own partnership in 1881 and founded his own business in 1884, trading softgoods. Around 1883, in Leith, Scotland, he married Rachael Agnes Doig, with whom he had three sons. He was actively involved in the free trade movement, serving as secretary of the Freetrade and Land Reformist League. In 1894 he was elected to the New South Wales Legislative Assembly as the Free Trade member for Randwick. He joined the Liberal Reform Party in 1901 and was involved in the foundation of the Nationalist Party in 1917. He was an honorary minister from 1916 to 1919, when he became Minister for Public Health. In 1920 he was elevated to the New South Wales Legislative Council. Storey was knighted in 1923 but died at Randwick the following year.[1]
