Profile

John Mordaunt, born on December 30, 1837, died in London on December 21, 1923. A good all-round cricketer, he was in the Eton XI's of 1854 and 1855, playing each year against both Harrow and Winchester. In the four matches he scored 69 runs in eight innings and took eleven wickets. He did not obtain his Blue at Oxford, but played subsequently for I Zingari, Warwickshire and Free Foresters. His portrait can be seen facing page 68 of Annals of the Free Foresters. Three of his sons--Messrs. E. C., H. J. and G. J. Mordaunt--became cricketers of note. .
