Émile Lombard (1849 - 1883) was a French missionary active in Siam (Thailand) during his brief missionary career. He was born in Bénévent-et-Charbillac, in the French Alps, and in 1868 entered the seminary of the Missions Etrangères de Paris. After training, he left for Siam in 1873. After managing a parish in Bangkok for two years, he began to teach at the seminary there before, in 1878-79, making a journey up the Chao Phraya River to Phitsanulok, meeting scattered communities along the way. Afterwards, he drew a map of the river and its villages, itself a significant advancement on existing European maps of the region. He died shortly afterwards, in 1883, in Bangkok, likely of malaria.
