Frederick Luther Fane (27 April 1875 in County Kildare, Ireland – 27 November 1960 in Brentwood, Essex) was born in Ireland, but played cricket for the England cricket team in 14 Test matches. He also played for Essex, Oxford University and London County.

He also captained England on five occasions: three times when he took over from the injured Arthur Jones; two times when he took over from H. D. G. Leveson Gower. He won two and lost three of these games.

He was the first Irish born player to score a century in a Test match for England and remained the only one for over a hundred years, until Eoin Morgan repeated the feat against Pakistan at Trent Bridge in July 2010.
