Profile

Cloudesley Henry Bullock Marsham died at the early age of 49. He was son of the late Rev. C. D. B. Marsham, the best Gentleman bowler of his day and went to Eton in 1892 to the house of Mr. R. A. H. Mitchell, the famous nurse of young cricketers. He made his first appearance at Lord's for Eton against Harrow in 1897, and played again the following season. Going up to Oxford, he was in the eleven in 1900, 1901, and 1902, being captain in his last year. Born with cricket in his blood and enjoying such an auspicious beginning to his career, he was obviously marked down as a future Kent captain, and in 1904 on the retirement of C. J. Burnup he succeeded to that post, having under his command such famous players as J. R. Mason, E. W. Dillon, S. E. Day, Blythe, Fielder, Huish, Humphreys, and Fairservice. Marsham played his first match for Kent in 1900, and in 1906 he enjoyed the satisfaction, while acting as captain, of seeing his side carry off the County Championship for the first time in the history of the county club. He did not have a particularly long career, for after 1908 he dropped out of first-class cricket, playing only twice in the following season, once in 1910, and a few times after the war. In this sterner field he was a captain in the West Kent Yeomanry, being attached to the Buffs and the R.A.F., and serving in Egypt, Gallipoli, and Palestine.
