Francis Booker (8 October 1746 at Eynsford, Kent – 13 November 1806 at Eynsford) was an English cricketer. He was a left-handed batsman who was noted as a fine hitter of the ball and a very good outfielder.
He began playing in the 1760s and was active until 1790, making 52 known first-class appearances from 1773, mainly for Kent.
Booker was a good single wicket player and was yet another cricketing innkeeper. He kept the Soho Inn in his home village.
