Peter Jeofry Searle Courtenay (11 March 1914 – 7 April 1959) played first-class cricket for Somerset in two matches in the 1934 season.[1] He was born at Weymouth in Dorset and died at Broadstone, also in Dorset. His younger brother Geofry also played for Somerset.

Educated at Marlborough College, Courtenay played as a lower-order right-handed batsman in two matches inside a week for Somerset, but was not successful, failing to reach double figures in any of his four first-class innings.

In the Second World War, he is recorded in the London Gazette as being commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army in Burma Reserve of Officers (ABRO).[2]
