WARNER, MR. ROBERT STEWART, AUCHER, K.C., who captained the first West Indies team that visited England in 1900, died at Nynehead Court, Taunton, on December 1, aged 85. A very useful batsman, he unfortunately contracted malarial fever when getting accustomed to cricket in England. He played a very good innings of 53 not out at Trent Bridge without revealing the form associated with his brother, Sir Pelham Warner - 14 years his junior. In fact, at 41 he was rather old to undergo the fatigue of continuous cricket, but he will remain in history as a keen lover and supporter of the game in West Indies. To quote The Times, he was a direct descendant of Sir Thomas Warner, who founded the first English colony, St. Kitts, in West Indies. Aucher Warner left Trinidad in 1922, but retained his close connection with the colony by writing in 1934 a book, Sir Thomas Warner, a Chronicle of his Family, and also by founding the Trinidad Cocoa Planters Association. Educated in Trinidad and at Oriel College, Oxford, he was called to the Bar, Inner Temple, in 1882, and he followed in the steps of his father as Solicitor-General and Attorney-General of Trinidad.
