Henry Seymour of Langley (1612 – 9 March 1686), was a British Royalist.

Seymour was the second son of Sir Edward Seymour, 2nd Baronet, and was a Page of Honour to Charles I, who granted him a reversion as Comptroller of the Customs in 1638. Upon the outbreak of the English Civil War, Seymour served under his kinsman the Marquess of Hertford and carried Hertford's challenge to the Earl of Bedford. He later left that army to serve as Groom of the Bedchamber to Prince Charles and carried the last messages between the Prince and his father.

He continued to attend Charles II and made several journeys into England, being at times imprisoned by the Parliamentarians. Upon the Restoration, he continued in his office as Groom of the Bedchamber, was able to enjoy the Comptrollership of Customs, and was appointed Clerk of the Hanaper. He was returned as MP for East Looe until his death. In 1666, he leased the estate of Langley, Buckinghamshire, which he purchased in 1669, receiving with it the manor of Langley.Beads Sequencing Rack
