George Thackeray (born 22 July 1806 at Bath, Somerset; died 9 October 1875 at Hemingby, Lincolnshire) was an English cricketer with amateur status.

Thackeray was educated at Eton and King's College, Cambridge.[1] He is recorded as playing in one first-class match for Cambridge University Cricket Club in 1826, totalling 5 runs with a highest score of 5 and holding no catches.[2] He graduated BA in 1830, having already become a fellow of the college in 1829. He continued as a fellow until 1841, during which he was ordained as a Church of England priest in 1833. He was rector of Hemingby, Lincolnshire, 1840–75.[1]
