Henry Nelson Coleridge (October 25, 1798–January 26, 1843) was an editor of the works of his uncle Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

Henry's father was Captain James Coleridge, the poet's brother. While a chancery barrister, Henry married Samuel's daughter Sara in 1829. He was a great admirer of his uncle and father-in-law. He later edited his works as well as "Table Talk", a collection of their conversations. When he died, Sara took over the task of editor.
