Ted Fordham (born 3 May 1940) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for the Essendon Bombers in the Victorian Football League (VFL). He was the VFL's leading goalkicker in the 1966 season.

Debuting in 1961, Fordham played as a half back flanker and follower during the early stages of his career. It was later in the 1964 season that he moved to full forward, under the instruction of John Coleman. He helped Essendon win the premiership the following season with six goals in the preliminary final and then kicked a record-equalling seven goals in the grand final against St Kilda.
