Thomas Attenborough (18 July 1833 – 21 January 1907) was an English cricketer who played for Derbyshire between 1871 and 1874. He was a member of the team that played Derbyshire's first match in May 1871.

Attenborough was born at Ilkeston, Derbyshire and was a cattle dealer.

Attenborough first represented Derbyshire in 1871, playing in the team's first ever match, against Lancashire, as a middle-upper order batsman. Derbyshire won the match by an innings margin, and the fixture held the record for the lowest ever score achieved against Derbyshire in first-class cricket for 87 years.

Attenborough followed this appearance up with five further games for the team, all of which, until 1874, were against Lancashire. Attenborough was an upper-order right-handed batsman and played nine innings in six first class matches with an average of 8.00 and a top score of 27. He was a slow left-arm bowler and took two first class wickets at a cost of 29 runs.[1]

Attenborough died at Ilkeston at the age of 73.
