George Russell Bell Earnshaw (5 May 1857 – 29 December 1894) was an English cricketer. Earnshaw was a right-handed batsman, although his bowling style is unknown. He was born at Clapham, Surrey.

Earnshaw made two first-class appearances for Surrey in 1880, against Middlesex and Yorkshire, with both matches played at The Oval.[1] In his first match, Middlesex won the toss and elected to bat first, making 179 all out. Surrey responded in their first-innings by making just 80 all out, with Earnshaw being dismissed for 5 runs by Augustus Ford. Forced to follow-on in their second-innings, Surrey were dismissed for 69, with Earnshaw ending the innings not out on 13. Middlesex won the match by an innings and 30 runs.[2] In his second match, Yorkshire won the toss and elected to bat first, making 398 all out. Surrey responded in their first-innings by making 176 all out, with Earnshaw being dismissed for 13 runs by Allen Hill. Forced to follow-on in their second-innings, Surrey were dismissed for 99, with Earnshaw being dismissed by Hill for a duck. Yorkshire won the match by an innings and 123 runs.[3]

He died at Merano in Austria-Hungary on 29 December 1894. His father, Alfred Earnshaw, also played first-class cricket.
