Charles Spencer Canning Boyle, 10th Earl of Cork and Orrery (24 November 1861 – 25 March 1925), styled Viscount Dungarvan until 1904, was an Irish soldier and peer.

He was appointed Lieutenant-Colonel of the North Somerset Yeomanry in 1893, and served in the Second Boer War, 1900 - 1902, following which he was promoted to the army rank of Major. He was also a Deputy Lieutenant of Somerset, and Grand Master of the Freemasons of Somerset from 1891.

He succeeded to the Earldom upon the death of his father, Richard Boyle, 9th Earl of Cork on 22 June 1904.

Lord Cork married, 21 November 1918, Mrs Rosalie Gray (d. 15 March 1930), daughter of William Waterman de Villiers, of Romsey, Hampshire, but had no issue. The earldom passed to his brother, the 11th Earl.
