Profile

The Right Rev. Edward Domett Shaw, Bishop of Buckingham, died at Marlow on November 5, aged 77. From Forest School he went to Oriel College, Oxford, and got his Blue in 1882. Second in the averages to C. F. H. Leslie he made 63 and 4 at Lord's in the match which Cambridge, who included the three Studds, Lord Hawke, F. E. Lacey and C. Aubrey Smith, won by seven wickets. An opening batsman with sound defence and good style in stroke play, E. D. Shaw did a notable performance in the opening match of the Australians' tour in 1882. Oxford faced a total of 362, and they fared badly but Shaw carried his bat for 78 in a total of 189. The Australians won by nine wickets, H. H. Massie following his highest innings in England, 206, by making 46 not out. Shaw played for Essex, Middlesex, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. A fast medium paced bowler, he took nine wickets in an innings of 17 for which twelve of M.C.C. were dismissed by Wooburn House in 1886. Two of his sons were in the Marlborough eleven before joining The Army; both were killed in the war.
