James 'Bonnor' Middleton (30 September 1865 in Chester-le-Street, England – 23 December 1913 in Cape Town, Cape Province) was a South African cricketer who played in six Tests from 1896 to 1902. On his debut, he took five wickets in the first innings against England in Port Elizabeth in 1896.[1]

A left-arm slow-medium opening bowler, Middleton played for Western Province from 1890-91 to 1903-04. His best first-class figures were 7 for 64 in the Currie Cup final against Transvaal in 1897-98. He took 12 for 100 in the match, which Western Province won.[2]

His nickname was given because of his resemblance, as a hard-hitting batsman, to the Australian Test cricketer George Bonnor.[1]
