Henry Horton, who died on November 2, 1998, aged 75, was a pillar of strength in Hampshire's batting line-up when he scored over 1,000 runs in 12 consecutive seasons from 1955 to 1966. He was at his peak as he amassed over 2,000 runs in 1959, 1960 and, so importantly, in the 1961 Championship year. In 1962 he missed the 2,000 mark by just 23 runs.
