Colonel John Cabourn Hartley DSO (born 15 November 1874 in Lincoln, England; died 8 March 1963 in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, England) was an English cricketer and army officer.

Hartley was educated at Tonbridge School and Brasenose College, Oxford.[1] He played first-class cricket for Oxford University Cricket Club between 1895 and 1897 and Sussex County Cricket Club between 1895 and 1898. He then went on to play for the Marylebone Cricket Club in first-class fixtures until 1926. Hartley also played Test cricket for England on their tour to South Africa in 1905-06.
