Rosser Beynon (1811 - 1876) was a Welsh musician. He was born in the Vale of Neath, Glamorganshire, shortly before his family moved to Merthyr Tydfil where for a few years he attended George Williams' school. At just 8 years of age however, he left school and began work in a local iron-works. From a young age he attended the Soar Congregational Chapel, where he became a precentor in 1835 and ran a music class. He collected and wrote hymn tunes, twenty of these were published in 'Telyn Seion', a collection of hymn tunes and anthems.

He died in January 1876 and was buried in Cefn cemetery, Merthyr Tydfil.
