Charles Byron Renfrew (born October 31, 1928) is a former United States federal judge, and in 2013, was listed as a NAFTA adjudicator.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Renfrew served in the United States Navy in the aftermath of World War II, from 1946 to 1948, then received an A.B. from Princeton University in 1952 and served in the United States Army from 1952 to 1953.

Renfrew was confirmed by the United States Senate on December 2, 1971, and received his commission on December 9, 1971.
