Samuel Malthouse (13 October 1857 – 7 February 1931) was an English cricketer who played for Derbyshire between 1890 and 1895.

Malthouse was born in Whitwell, Derbyshire, the son of John G. Malthouse, a mason, and his wife Ann. Malthouse himself became a mason,[1] He was a notable performer for Whitwell Cricket Club in the 1880s with James Stubbings and 'G G' Walker and all three also played for Welbeck as well as the county.[2]

Malthouse debuted for Derbyshire in the 1890 season, when the club was without first-class status and he was fourth highest scorer and achieved a five wicket innings in 1890. He played regularly for the next three years. He played eight first class matches during the 1894 season, starting with a match against Lancashire. After Derbyshire joined the County Championship in the 1895 season, he played one match - a draw against Warwickshire. Malthouse was a left-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-pace and occasional off-spin bowler. He was a lower-order batsman and a consistent and economical bowler.[3]

Malthouse died at Whitwell aged 74.[citation needed]

His son, William Malthouse, played for Derbyshire between 1919 and 1920.[citation needed]
