An Australian Test cricketer. His career was short, playing his only Test in the first Test match ever in Melbourne in 1877, but his legacy was great. His brother was Dave Gregory, Australia's first captain, and his son was Syd Gregory, who captained Australia many times in the 1900s. He was also the father in law to Harry Donnan, another Test cricketer.

He is reputed to be the first born Australian Test cricketer, along with Nat Thomson who also appeared in the first Test.
