George James Carver (4 May 1879 – 1 October 1912) was an English cricketer. Carver's batting style is unknown, though it is known he was a fast-medium bowler, though which he arm he bowled with is also unknown. He was born at Thames Ditton, Surrey.

Carver made a single first-class appearance for Surrey against Gloucestershire in the 1907 County Championship at the Ashley Down Ground, Bristol.[1] Surrey won the toss and elected to bat, making 189 all out, with Carver scoring 36 runs before he was dismissed by Francis Roberts. Gloucestershire responded in their first-innings by making 404 all out, with Carver taking a single wicket, that of Percy Mills, to finish with figures of 1/42 from eighteen overs. Surrey were then dismissed for 171 in their second-innings, with Carver being dismissed by Henry Huggins for a duck. Gloucestershire won the match by an innings and 44 runs.[2] This was his only major appearance for Surrey.

He died at Bootle, Lancashire, on 1 October 1912. His brothers-in-law, Frederick Mathews, also played first-class cricket.
