Francis Joseph Shacklock (September 22, 1861 - May 1, 1937) was an English first class cricketer. The name of Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous character, Sherlock Holmes, is said to have been inspired partially by Shacklock, and partially by Nottinghamshire wicketkeeper Mordecai Sherwin.

Shacklock started his career in 1883 with Nottinghamshire and played with them for ten years during which time he had a one year stint at Derbyshire. In 1903 he moved to New Zealand where spent a season with Otago. He remained in New Zealand and died in Christchurch in 1937.
