Henry Barrington "Tim" Tristram (5 September 1861 – 1 October 1946) was an English sportsman who played international rugby union for England and first-class cricket.[1]

Tristam played his rugby as a fullback and took part in the inaugural Home Nations Championship in 1883, debuting in England's final fixture against Scotland. England won the championship that year and he was also a member of three further campaigns, including their second title win in 1884.[2]

From 1883 to 1893, he played with the Durham County Cricket Club, but his matches didn't have first-class status.[3] His only first-class match came when he was studying at Oxford in 1883, representing the university against the Gentlemen of England. A right handed batsman, he came in at four in each innings, but scored just six and one.[4]

In 1903 he replaced his brother in-law, Hely Hutchinson Almond, as Headmaster of Loretto School. He remained in that position until 1908, when he was forced to retire south because of delicate health.[5] He taught for four more years at St Paul's School in London, but then retired even further south to Jersey.
