Henry of Appleford, O.S.B., was a monk who ruled as Abbot of Reading Abbey in the English county of Berkshire from 1342 to 1361.

Originating from the village of Appleford-on-Thames, twenty miles to the north-west and also in Berkshire (now in Oxfordshire), all that is otherwise known about him is that his death in 1361 was due to the Black Death.[1][2]
