George Nigel Capel-Cure JP DL TD (28 September 1908 – 8 August 2004) was an English cricketer. He was a left-handed batsman and leg-break bowler who played a single game in his entire career for Essex during the 1929 season.
Capel Cure played just one game for Essex, in the 1929 season, of a drawn match against his alma mater Cambridge University. Batting at number four, Capel Cure was trapped leg-before wicket by Trevil Morgan in his first innings for a duck, and scored just six runs in the second innings before being caught and bowled by Gordon Chandler.
Bowling, he took 2–58 in the Essex first innings; his wickets were of Tom Killick (lbw, but only after he'd scored a double century) and George Kemp-Welch (also lbw) in the Cambridge 1st innings. Cambridge did not complete their 2nd innings.
Capel Cure was a landowner in Shropshire and Essex. He received the Territorial Decoration. He was High Sheriff of Essex in 1951–52 and deputy lord-lieutenant of the county from 1958 to 1978. He lived at Blake Hall, near Ongar. He died in Harlow.
