John Herbert King (born 16 April 1871 in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, England; died 18 November 1946 in Denbigh, Wales) was a cricketer who played first-class cricket for Leicestershire between 1895 and 1925. He also played one Test match for England, which was against Australia at Lord's in 1909. He did the double, of 1,000 runs and 100 wickets, in 1912 and 11 years later, when he was 52 years old, scored his second double century.

After retiring as a cricketer, aged 52, he continued his involvement in the game as an umpire for another 11 years.

He had two benefits at Leicestershire: the first in 1910, the second in 1923.

Trivia

King is the last batsman to have been given out "Hit the ball twice" in a first-class game in England, when in the match against Surrey at the Oval in 1906 King stopped the ball from running onto his stumps by hitting it a second time, and then attempted to run a single.
