Frederick Victor Butterfield (28 February 1864 – 9 March 1974) was a validated British supercentenarian.
Frederick Butterfield was born on 28 February 1864 in the town of Thirsk in Yorkshire County in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Following the death of Friedrich Wedeking of West Germany (now Germany) on 5 May 1973, Butterfield became the oldest living verified man in the world until his death at the age of 110 years, 9 days (however, pending case Isaac Edwards may have been older). He was, after John Mosley Turner, the second man that Guinness recognized as Britain's oldest man (Guinness had let the title lapse after the death of Turner). He was also Europe's oldest person when he died. He was a chemist.
