Arthur William Lupton (23 February 1879 – 14 April 1944) was an English amateur first-class cricketer, who played 104 matches for Yorkshire County Cricket Club from 1908 to 1927.[1] He also played for the MCC (1909), the Gentlemen of England (1910) and H.D.G. Leveson-Gower's XI (1911).

Born in Little Horton, Bradford, Yorkshire, England, Lupton's overall record was modest, despite the large number of games that he played. A left-handed batsman, he scored 724 runs at 10.34 with a highest score of 43 not out against Nottinghamshire. He took 14 wickets (none of them for Yorkshire)[1] at 32.50 with his occasional right arm fast medium, with a best analysis for 4 for 109 against Cambridge University. He also took 30 catches in the field.

Lupton died in April 1944 at Carlton Manor, Guiseley, Yorkshire.
