Profile

SIR EVELYN RIDLEY BRADFORD, 2nd Bart., Colonel of the Seaforth Highlanders, was killed in action in France in September. Born on April 16, 1869, he was thus in his forty-sixth year at the time of his death. He was a fine batsman with good defence, a safe field and a fast bowler whose action was not approved by several first-class umpires. Whilst playing for Hampshire in 1899 he was no-balled by White and Pickett in the match with the Australians at Southampton, and by A. F. Smith at Leicester. In the last-mentioned game, however, he scored 102, the next highest score in the innings being only 39, and this was his best batting performance for his county. Against Essex at Southampton three years before he had taken six wickets for 28 runs in the first innings and five for 40 in the second. In military matches he was a heavy run-getter, and as recently as May, 1913, had played an innings of 251 for Shorncliffe Garrison against Folkestone. For Aldershot Command v. Incogniti in May, 1895, he scored 248. His father, the Chief Commissioner of London Police, married twice, his first wife being a daughter of Edward Knight, of Hampshire and Kent, and his second a daughter of William Nicholson, of Harrow and M.C.C. Through his grandfather, Col. Bradford was thus related to a whole host of famous cricketers, including the Jenners, Normans, Nepeans, Barnards, Bonham-Carters, Wathens, and Dykes.
