Sampson Lennard (died 20 September 1615), of Chevening in Kent, was an English Member of Parliament who represented an unusually large number of different constituencies during the reigns of Elizabeth I and James I.

A prominent member of the Kent and Sussex gentry, Lennard was High Sheriff of Kent in 1590–1. He entered Parliament in 1571 as member for Launceston (Cornwall). He subsequently also represented Bramber (1584–5), St Mawes (1586–7), Christchurch (1589), St Germans (1593), Rye (1597), Liskeard (1601) and Sussex (1614).

Lennard married Margaret Fiennes (1541–1612), daughter of Thomas Fiennes, 9th Baron Dacre, and after her brother's death in 1594 he successfully claimed the barony on her behalf, so that she became the 11th Baroness Dacre. They had seven children, and their younger son, Sir Henry Lennard (1570–1616), succeeded his mother as 12th Baron Dacre.

  7. Samson signed his name "Lennard" (see, for example, here), and his descendant Thomas Barrett-Lennard, in his history of the family, sometimes inserts a "sic" into quotations spelling it "Leonard", (for example, here), which seems a bit harsh given that spelling of last names was not yet regularized. In any case, contemporaries seem to have spelled it various ways.
