James Hendren (17 July 1885 – 17 June 1915) was a Scottish professional football centre forward who made over 120 appearances in the Scottish League for Hibernian. He also played for Nithsdale Wanderers, Kilmarnock and Cowdenbeath.
Hendren worked as a miner in Ayrshire and later emigrated to the USA. He returned to Scotland to resume his football career and he enlisted as a driver in the Army Service Corps after the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. Hendren was allowed to delay his enlistment, as his wife had just given birth to their second child. Just over a month after his final appearance for Hibernian, Hendren died of acute pneumonia at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh on 17 June 1915. His great-nephew is former Hibernian and Celtic footballer Pat Stanton.
