Charles James Abbott (1815 – 6 January 1889) was an English first-class cricketer. Abbott's batting style is unknown. He was born at St Pancras, London, and educated at Winchester College.

Abbott made a single first-class appearance for Surrey against the Marylebone Cricket Club at Lord's in 1844.[1] The Marylebone Cricket Club made 80 in their first-innings, with Surrey making 58 in response, during which Abbott scored 2 runs before he was dismissed by William Lillywhite. The Marylebone Cricket Club made 52 in their second-innings, with Surrey chasing down their target of 75 with three wickets to spare. Abbott wasn't required to bat in Surrey's second-innings.[2] This was his only major appearance for Surrey.

He died at Walton-on-Thames, Surrey on 6 January 1889. His son, William, played first-class cricket for Surrey County Cricket Club.
