Henry Scadding (July 29, 1813 – May 6, 1901) was a Canadian author and clergyman.
Scadding was born in Dunkeswell, Devon, England, and migrated to Canada with his parents, John Scadding and Melicent Triggs, in 1821. He was educated at Upper Canada College and at St. John's College at Cambridge University, Cambridge, England, from which he graduated in 1837. He was the first boy enrolled at Upper Canada College and has a Day Boy House named after him there.
In 1838 he was appointed to a tutorship at Upper Canada College and was ordained a priest of the Church of England – Upper Canada College later named a house in his honour, Scadding's. On August 14, 1841, he married Harriet Eugenia Baldwin (d. 1843) and they had one daughter, Henrietta Millicent (June 1, 1842 - 1926). In 1847 he became rector of the Church of the Holy Trinity, a post he held until 1875. He was also a canon of St. James' Cathedral.
He edited the Canadian Journal of Science, Literature, and History from 1868 to 1878. He also published many books, including Memorial of the Reverend William Honywood Riply (1849), Shakespeare the Seer—the Interpreter (1864), Truth's Resurrection (1865), Christian Pantheism (1865), Toronto of Old (1873), The Four Decades of York, Upper Canada (1884) and A History of the Old French Fort at Toronto (1887). In his writings Scadding was principally interested in history and religious themes.
