Samuel Roberts (1800-1885), or simply "S.R.", was a Welsh political and economical writer.

In 1843, Roberts founded a Welsh language journal, Y Cronicl, in which he campaigned for radical causes. In 1857, he travelled to Tennessee in the hope of setting up a Welsh colony there. After ten years, he gave up the attempt and returned to Wales.
