Samuel Ferrior (1772 – 18 June 1815) was a British soldier killed at the Battle of Waterloo on 18 June 1815.
Born in Pembrokeshire, he was promoted to Captain in the 1st Life Guards on 1 August 1802. On 30 June 1810 he was promoted from captain to major by purchase and subsequently to lieutenant-colonel.
Records suggest that during the battle, as major and Lieutenant-colonel he led his regiment in eleven charges, most of which were not made until after "his head had been laid open by the cut of a sabre and his body was pierced with a lance".
