Charles Robert Cecil Augustine Allberry (9 November 1911 – 3 April 1943) was an English Egyptologist and Coptic scholar. A friend of novelist C. P. Snow, Allberry was a model for Roy Calvert in Snow's series of novels Strangers and Brothers.
Allberry translated Manichaean manuscripts, and is particularly known for translating and editing the first edition of A Manichean Psalm-Book, Part II, in 1938. He also compiled a Coptic dictionary, unfinished at his death. He served as editor of the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology (from 1939).
He was married to Patricia Katherine Grace Sandbach. They had a son together: David Charles Anthony Allberry, who was born after Charles' death on 31 July 1943.
