Master Canterbury (18**-18**) was a young amateur performer in Cape Town.

Possibly the son of an officer stationed in Cape Town in 1825, attached to the Garrison Players in Cape Town. He is mentioned only once by Bosman (1928), when he appeared for them as "Snowball" in a performance of Exchange No Robbery (Hook) on 8 October, 1825.
