John Thomas Brown (24 November 1874 – 12 April 1950[1]) was an English first-class cricketer.

Born in Snape Hill, Darfield, Yorkshire, England, Brown was a right arm fast bowler and right-handed tail end batsman. He played thirty matches for Yorkshire between 1897 and 1903.[1] He took 97 wickets, with a best of 8 for 40 against Gloucestershire, at an average of 21.35. He took 5 wickets in a match eight times, and 10 wickets in a match on two occasions. His best innings, a knock of 37*, came against Nottinghamshire.[1]

He died in April 1950, in Duckmanton, Derbyshire. His brother, William Brown, was also a first-class cricketer for Yorkshire.

Confusion[edit]

He is not to be confused with another J. T. Brown, who played more frequently for Yorkshire (and England), but over a similar time span. For clarity, the latter is often described as Brown, J. T. (Driffield).[1]
