Winifred Selina Sturt, Baroness Hardinge of Penshurst, CI (17 March 1868 - 11 June 1914) was an English noblewoman.
Winifred Selina "Bena" Sturt was the second daughter of Henry Gerard Sturt, 1st Baron Alington, of Crichel, Dorset, and his first wife Lady Augusta Bingham, the first daughter of George Charles Bingham, 3rd Earl of Lucan.
Henry Gerard Sturt was a racing magnate and close friend of Edward, prince of Wales. The Sturt family opposed Winifred's engagement to Charles Hardinge, 1st Baron Hardinge of Penshurst on account of Winifred and Charles' consanguinity (they were first cousins), as well as Hardinge's relative indigence, but the couple married on 17 April 1890.
