A. J. Wickwar (fl. 1897 - 1927) was a British colonial officer, tea grower, and surveyor active in Sri Lanka in the late 19th and early 20th Century. He is best known as the 15th Surveyor General of Ceylon. He was appointed in 1923, succeeding W. C. S. Ingles, and held the office until 1927. He was succeeded by A. H. G. Dawson. Little is known of his life. He was in Ceylon as a surveyor as early as 1898, but probably earlier, as the Wickwar family were prominent figures in the Sri Lanka tea trade. Along with Norman Bostock he was instrumental in the building of the Aislaby Tea Estate. Wickwar was a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society from at least 1919, and also a member of the Piccadilly Badminton Club.
