Ferdinand Ashmall (9 January 1695 - 2 February 1798) was an English centenarian, the second person verified to reach the age of 100, and the first person known to reach the age of 103. He is not to be confused with his uncle, for whom he is named after (it is known that his uncle's name was not used as a necronym in this case, as his uncle died in 1712, when Ashmall was 17). He was a secular Catholic priest.


For most of his life, he was a Catholic priest. He was named for his uncle, who died in 1712. He later moved to Esh, County Durham, where he remained until his death.[1]
