Hugh Hamon Massie (11 April 1854 – 12 October 1938) was a cricketer who played for New South Wales and Australia.[1]

Massie's role in the 1882 Ashes Test at The Oval was almost as pivotal in deciding the result as Fred Spofforth's celebrated performance with the ball.[2] With Charles Bannerman as his opening partner, the hard-hitting Massie scored 55 in 57 minutes from just sixty deliveries, with nine fours, to give the Australians a chance.[3] They duly took the match to win by seven runs.

His son Robert John 'Jack' Allwright Massie was also a noted New South Wales cricketer.[4]
