Furneux Pelham or Furneaux Pelham is a village and civil parish in the East Hertfordshire District of Hertfordshire, England. The village is one of "the Pelhams", part of an early medieval larger swathe of land known as Pelham including Brent Pelham to the north and Stocking Pelham to the east and northeast. The population, according to the 2011 UK census, was 553.

The village is largely linear covering much of the width of the parish from east to west and is buffered by gently sloped fields with some woodland to all sides. It is known for its ford (Violet's Lane) to the north along the upper River Ash which is over 1 kilometre (1,100 yd) long.

The village has a church, St Mary the Virgin, with a medieval carved wooden roof which was restored and elaborately painted in the 1960s by the artist John Norbury.

Furneux Pelham Hall has parts dating from the 18th century and is Grade II* listed, the middle category of listed building under the national statutory preservation scheme for buildings and their setting.
