Peter Bramley (1785 – 5 November 1838) was an English professional cricketer who played first-class cricket in 1826, having played for Nottingham Cricket Club since 1813. He was primarily a batsman who fielded at cover point.

He was a publican by trade and kept the Old Spot Inn at Daybrook in Nottinghamshire. A keen cards player, he had a reputation for gambling but was said to be "fundamentally kind at heart".[1]

The only first-class match that Bramley took part in was Sheffield and Leicester v Nottingham at Sheffield's Darnall New Ground in July 1826. Tom Marsden scored 227 for Sheffield and Leicester, who won by an innings and 203.[2]

Bramley was born at Arnold, Nottinghamshire and died at the Graziers Half Way House in Nottinghamshire.
