Though never prominent as a player Mr. Percy Thornton was all through his life a prominent and most popular figure in the cricket world.

He excelled far more at athletics than at cricket, being a good half-mile runner in the early days of athletics. He sat for many years as M.P. for Clapham. Cousin of Mr. C. T. Thornton.
