Samuel Ward (15771639) was an English academic and a master at the University of Cambridge.

Born in Haverhill, Suffolk, he attended Christ's College, Cambridge as a student, and was ultimately Master of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. He was a Puritan who wrote extensively on doctrinal issues.

Ward was one of the scholars involved with the translation and preparation of the King James Version of the Bible. He served in the "Second Cambridge Company" charged with translating the Apocrypha.

Ward also designed and made the Double Deliverance, a woodcut.

Ward was the eldest of three brothers, all Puritans. One brother was Nathaniel Ward, whose book The Body of Liberties directly influenced to the first United States Constitution.
