Richard Rowe (9 March 1828 – 9 December 1879) was an English author, also active in Australia.

Rowe was born at Spring Gardens, Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England, the son of Thomas Rowe, a Wesleyan minister. Thomas Rowe died while Richard was still very young; the remaining family moved to Colchester, where Richard was educated at Mr Bradnack's school.

Rowe came to Australia in 1853; by 1857 he was working on the Month and The Sydney Morning Herald sometimes using the pseudonym 'A Sassenach Settler'. In 1858 his Peter 'Possum's Portfolio was published at Sydney, a volume of prose and verse dedicated to his benefactor Nicol Stenhouse. The prose included a short novel,Arthur Owen--An Autobiography, and most of the verse consisted of translations.
