Profile

Charles William Lloyd Bulpett, who died at Nairobi, Kenya, on July 11, aged 87, played for Rugby against Marlborough at Lord's in 1891, and appeared for Middlesex against Yorkshire there in 1880. He did not gain his cricket Blue at Oxford, but enjoyed a reputation for other sporting activities. Over a level measured mile at Newmarket in 1887 he won a wager of £200 and £400 in bets by walking a mile, running a mile and riding a mile in less than 18 minutes. A year later, at the age of 35, he accomplished the feat again in better time and won a bet of £1,000 to £400. A sound bat and useful fast bowler, he succeeded A. G. Guillemard as Hon. Secretary of the Butterflies CC and was, in his turn, followed by C. F. H. Leslie.
