Samuel Whitbread (1764-1815) was a British politician. He was the only son and third child of Samuel Whitbread (1720-1796), brewer and politician, and his first wife, Harriet, daughter of William Hayton, attorney, of Ivinghoe, Buckinghamshire. When the Drury Lane Theatre burned down in 1809, theater owner Richard Brinsley Sheridan was financially ruined. Sheridan turned to his old friend Samuel Whitbread to head a committee that would manage the company, deal with the theater's complex debts, and oversee the rebuilding. Whitbread asked Sheridan to withdraw from management himself, which he did entirely by 1811. Thomas Shaw (ca. 1760-ca. 1830) was one of the many claimants against the management of the Drury Lane Theatre.
