George Brown (October 6, 1887 at Cowley, Oxford – December 3, 1964 at Winchester, Hampshire) was an English cricketer who played in 7 Tests from 1921 to 1923. George Brown was born in Cowley, Oxfordshire, the son of Edwin Brown and Sarah Ann (nee Casey). As his figures indicate, he was a very versatile cricketer, being useful as batsman, bowler and wicketkeeper. He played first-class cricket for Hampshire between 1908 and 1933. Though he was never their regular keeper, it was in that role that he played for England, with stiffening the batting in mind.
