Match Notes


General
    • Surrey and Middlesex Captain not named
    • England Captain not named
    • Surrey and Middlesex Wicket-keeper not named
    • Surrey and Middlesex 1st innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
    • England 1st innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
    • Surrey and Middlesex 2nd innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
    • England 2nd innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
    • The sources are unanimous that this game began the same day as the previous match ended, meaning that Aylward, Goldham, Graham and Ray must have hurried across London from Lord's. Gunnell is assumed to be the senior of the two Mitcham players of this name, i.e. W Gunnell, rather than J Gunnell who was to make a single appearance in an important match in 1810.
    • SB has W Bullen playing instead of Taylor, but no contemporary source has been found for this. Buckley in Fresh Light on Pre-Victorian Cricket notes 'Bullen vice Taylor' but the Morning Herald, which he cites, does not appear to contain any such statement. It is possible that Buckley was attempting to account for the presence of Bullen in the SB version when the list in MH of those due to play gives Taylor instead. Britcher, SM and Bentley all give Taylor and this is accepted.
