John William Trumble (16 September 1863 – 17 August 1944) was an Australian cricketer who played in 7 Tests between 1885 and 1886.

He was the brother of Hugh Trumble.

While never reaching the lofty standards of his brother he was a good off break bowler for Victoria and handy with the bat. He produced some useful performances in his seven Tests for Australia but nothing outstanding. He continued to be a good servant of Victorian cricket bowling some fine spells in domestic cricket.

John studied law at the University of Melbourne and founded the firm of Trumble and Palmer at Nhill in country Victoria. The firm still exists. His cricket career was short as he chose to focus on his legal career.

John married Susan Davies - they had 7 children.
