Cricketer. An amateur gentleman cricketer, he played for the Kent County Cricket Club and the Marylebone Cricket Club, which established the laws and founded the English national team. He was educated at Harrow school, where he captained the cricket team and Christ Church College, Oxford, where he began his first class career. He was usually placed later in the batting order because, although not a fast scorer, he was difficult to get out. In this era of underarm bowlers, he was best known for his slow right-arm lobs. He made his first class debut at the match of Marylebone Cricket Club versus Gentlemen of Kent at Lord's Cricket Ground, July 26 to 27, 1830. He played in 56 known first class matches until the 1849 season. He scored a total of 828 runs and took 130 wickets, including eight in one innings and 10 in a single match on two occasions. His last first class match was Gentlemen of Kent versus Gentlemen of England at Canterbury on August 23 to 24, 1849.
