Arthur Christopher Benson (24 April 1862 17 June 1925) was one of six children of Edward White Benson, a late nineteenth-century Archbishop of Canterbury. An uncle of the family was philosopher Henry Sidgwick. The Benson family were exceptionally literate and accomplished, but their history was somewhat tragic.

None of the children ever married.
