Samuel Slade (1753–1829) was a Church of England clergyman.


Slade was educated at St Peter's College, Westminster and elected to Christ Church, Oxford University in 1789, where he received his Doctorate of Divinity.[1]


In 1796 he became tutor to the Duke of Dorset, and in 1813 was first Chaplain to Lord Whitworth, then Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland.[2] He was instituted Vicar of Staverton, Northamptonshire on 11 April 1815 and Rector of Hartfield, Sussex in 1817.[2] On the 12 March 1824 he was granted the dignity dean of the Cathedral Church of Chichester, after the previous incumbent had been promoted to the bishopric of Gloucester.[3] Samual Slade died on 29 December 1829, although it had been expected that he would have gone further in his career, if he had lived longer.[4]
