Norman Hampton Humphries (19 May 1917 – 18 December 2000) was an English cricketer who played first-class cricket for Worcestershire in 1946. He also played minor counties cricket for Devon between 1938 and 1955. For Devon, however, it could be a different story, and in June 1949 Humphries produced his finest form. First he hit 199 against Kent II,and immediately thereafter he struck 216 not out, carrying his bat against Surrey II. By coincidence, in this game Alan Brazier made 216 not out in Surrey II's own first innings! Two brothers, Cedric and Gerald, also played for Worcestershire.
