Tom Peake (c.1720–1767) was a noted English cricketer of the mid-18th century. He is believed to have come from Chelsfield in Kent and is known to have lived there and at nearby Orpington.
It is possible that he played for Dartford, which was a leading club at the time, as well as for Kent county cricket teams and All-England.
Peake was first recorded as a given man playing for Addington against the London Cricket Club in 1743, a game that Addington won by an innings.
The last documented mention of Peake is six years later in June 1749 when he played for Stephen Dingate's XI in a major challenge match against Robert Colchin's XI at the Artillery Ground.
