Sir Frank Merry Stenton (1880 – 1967) was a 20th-century historian of Anglo-Saxon England, and president of the Royal Historical Society (1937–1945).  He was educated at Keble College, Oxford, of which he was elected an Honorary Fellow in 1947.
He was the author of Anglo-Saxon England, a volume of the Oxford History of England series, first published in 1943 and an important classic history of the period.
Stenton was a professor of history at the University of Reading (1926-1946), and subsequently the university's vice-chancellor (1946-1950).   He was knighted in the 1948 New Year Honours list.
His wife, Doris Mary Stenton, was a historian in her own right, writing English Society in the Early Middle Ages for the Pelican History of England, and The English Woman in History in 1957.
Stenton's papers, together with those of his wife Lady Doris Stenton, their library and his coin collection are part of the special collections at Reading University.
