Charles Preston Wickham (September 15, 1836 – March 18, 1925) was a 19th-century congressman and judge from Norwalk, Huron County, Ohio.

Wickham attended the public schools, the Norwalk Academy, and the Cincinnati Law School. He was admitted to the bar in 1858 and practiced in Norwalk, Ohio.

During the American Civil War, he enlisted as a private in Company D, Fifty-fifth Regiment, Ohio Volunteers, in September 1861 and rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel by brevet. He was mustered out of the service July 11, 1865, and resumed the practice of law in Norwalk.

He served as prosecuting attorney 1866-1870 and was elected judge of the court of common pleas of the fourth judicial district in 1880 and 1885. Wickham was then elected as a Republican to the Fiftieth and Fifty-first Congresses (March 4, 1887 – March 3, 1891) and served as chairman of the Committee on Coinage, Weights, and Measures (Fifty-first Congress). He died in Norwalk, Ohio on March 18, 1925, after being struck by a car and was interred in Woodlawn Cemetery.
