The Reverend Thomas William Leventhorpe (1813 – 12 August 1860) was an English cricketer. Leventhorpe's batting style is unknown.

The son of Thomas Leventhorpe and Mary Collett,[1] Leventhorpe was educated at Winchester College, before attending Jesus College, Cambridge.[2] While studying at Cambridge, Leventhorpe made a single appearance in first-class cricket for Cambridge University against the Marylebone Cricket Club at Parker's Piece in 1835.[3] In a match which the Marylebone Cricket Club won by 88 runs, he was dismissed for a duck twice, firstly by Charles Parnther in Cambridge University's first-innings, and then by John Bayley in their second-innings.[4]

After leaving Jesus College in 1839, he became the reverend of a number of churches in Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire prior to his death at Yelling, Huntingdonshire on 12 August 1860.[2] His brother was the Confederate American Civil War general Collett Leventhorpe.[1]
