Samuel Sandys, 1st Baron Sandys, PC (1695 – 1770) was a British politician in the 18th century.

He was born in Greenwich, the son of Edwin Sandys of Ombersley in the English county of Worcestershire and a descendant of Edwin Sandys, the Archbishop of York.

He inherited his grandfather's estates in 1701 and was Member of Parliament (MP) for Worcester from 1718 to 1743. In 1725, he married Letitia the daughter of Sir Thomas Tipping of Wheatfield in Oxfordshire. In 1742, he was made a privy councillor. The following year, he was created Baron Sandys of Ombersley. He died on 21 April 1770 when his post chaise overturned on Highgate Hill, and he was succeeded in his title and estates by his eldest son, Edwin.
