Relation Brother - E Stogdon
John Stogdon, who played for Harrow, Cambridge University and Middlesex, died on December 17, aged 68. In 1894 against Eton he made the highest score in each innings (32 and 19), and next year, when captain, he played a brilliant innings of 124, the third highest hit in the big Schools match at headquarters. Stogdon never showed his best form at Lord's against Oxford, and he met with only small success when appearing occasionally in county cricket, but he possessed splendid style, using his height to the full extent in playing forward and driving. Almost as a coincidence, T. G. O. Cole, who first played for Harrow when J. H. Stogdon was captain, died on December 15. Very good at rackets, Stogdon, with A. S. Crawley, won the Public Schools Cup in 1895, while he and E. Garnett won the rackets doubles for Cambridge against Oxford in 1897. A son of J. H. Stogdon, J. W. Stogdon, played for Harrow in 1928 and 1929.
