Ronald Thurston Bryan (30 July 1898–27 July 1970) was an English cricketer.

Bryan was born in Beckenham, Kent in 1898. He played first-class cricket for 17 years, appearing solely for Kent between 1920 to 1937, and was one of Kent's joint captains in 1937.

He was one of three left-handed brothers who all played as amateurs. However, he was allowed three months leave in order to take up the joint captaincy in 1937.

He died in Pevensey Bay, Sussex in 1970, three days before his seventy-second birthday.
