Price Devereux, 10th Viscount Hereford (9 June 1694 – 29 July 1748) was a British Peer. He was the son of Price Devereux, 9th Viscount Hereford.

He was Member of Parliament for Montgomeryshire from 1719 until his succession in 1740, when he ranked as premier viscount of England. In 1719 he was High Sheriff of Brecknockshire, where he inherited the estate of the Morgans of Pencoyd near Hay-on-Wye. He married as his second wife (1740) a daughter of William Price of Rhiwlas, Merioneth.

On his death the title passed to Edward Devereux, a distant cousin of Nantcribba, Montgomeryshire and the estate at Vaynor Park was sold.
