Daniel Maynadier Henry (February 19, 1823 – August 31, 1899) was an American politician.

Henry was born near Cambridge, Maryland, and attended Cambridge Academy and St. John's College of Annapolis, Maryland. He studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1844, and practiced in Cambridge.

Henry began his political career as a member of the Maryland House of Delegates in 1846, and again later in 1849. He also served in the Maryland State Senate in 1869. In 1876, Henry was elected as a Democrat to the Forty-fifth, and in 1878 to the Forty-sixth Congresses, serving from March 4, 1877 to March 3, 1881. During the forty-sixth congress, he served as chairman of the Committee on Accounts.

After his tenure in Congress, Henry continued the practice of law until his death in Cambridge. He is interred in Christ Protestant Episcopal Church Cemetery.

He was the uncle of Maryland Governor Henry Lloyd.[1]
