Samuel "Sam" Ledward (9 November 1906 – 18 August 2015) was at the time of his death, the oldest living man in Wales.
Ledward was born on 9 November 1906 and worked as a cabinet-maker and as a butcher. At the age of 30 after a motorbike accident, doctors had decleared him dead. He was found to be alive after an eagle-eyed man saw his hand move, and found he was still warm.  He spent much of his childhood in Winsford. He married a woman named Edith in 1940 and the two lived in Blackpool. Edith died in 1993. Two years later, Ledward moved to Flintshire to live with Edith's cousin Millie Minshall, 92.
