Ross Hamilton, who died at his birth-place, Grenada, British West Indies, on March 29, aged 90, played for Somerset and was a prolific scorer for Incogniti, Lansdown and M.C.C. He made 101 for Gentlemen against Players of Sussex at Hove in 1869; in 1871, hit six centuries, ranging from 107 to 188; in 1876, eleven centuries: in 1877, nine centuries; while in 1883 he played four consecutive three-figure innings in the course of ten days. That year he headed the Marylebone Club averages with 59. He hit up 216 for Somerset against Emeriti in 1879 and on August 31, 1876, in a match between Shanklin and Ryde visitors, he made 291. These performances were all exceptional in those days even if the bowling and fielding were inferior on some occasions. He kept wicket efficiently.
