Arthur Thomas Malkin (born 1803 at Hackney, London; died 1888 at Inverness) was an English writer, alpinist and cricketer.


The third son of Benjamin Heath Malkin and his wife Charlotte Williams, daughter of the Rev. Thomas Williams, headmaster of Cowbridge grammar school, he entered Trinity College, Cambridge in 1820, graduating B.A. in 1825, M.A, in 1828.[1][2] He is likely the "Malkin" elected to the Cambridge Apostles in 1826.[3]

A civil engineering partnership with Angier March Perkins and James Philip Roy was dissolved in 1829.[4] He purchased an estate at Corrybrough, Tomatin, Inverness-shire, where he became a Deputy Lieutenant; and also resided at 21 Wimpole Street, London.[1][5]


Malkin was associated with Cambridge University Cricket Club and was recorded in one first-class match in 1826, totalling 11 runs with a highest score of 11 not out and holding no catches.[6]

In 1827 he was one of a rowing eight that took a boat from Cambridge to King's Lynn, then across The Wash to Boston, Lincolnshire. Others in the crew were Kenelm Digby and John Mitchell Kemble.[7]
