Brobham (first name and dates unknown) was an English first-class cricketer who was active in the 1760s and 1770s. He played for Dartford and Kent. Brobham was recorded twice. He played for John Frederick Sackville, 3rd Duke of Dorset's team in a single wicket "fives" match at the Artillery Ground in May 1768.[1] In September 1775, he was a member of the Dartford team playing against Chertsey at Laleham Burway.[2]

As Brobham had established his reputation by 1768, he must have been active for some years previously and was possibly near the end of his career in 1775. Very few players were mentioned by name in contemporary reports and there are no other references to Brobham.
