Capt. George Allan Webbe, elder brother of Messrs. A. J. and H.R. Webbe, was born in London on January 15, 1854, and died at Errollston, Ascot, on February 19, aged 71. In Scores and Biographies (xiii-272) it was said of him : " Is a really good batsman,an energetic field at cover-point, and if he continues the game game will perhaps excel." He could also keep wicket. He and Mr. A. A. Hadow won the Public Schools Racquets Cup in 1871 and 1872. He had a serious illness immediately after the Racquets matches of 1872 which so weakened him that he failed to get into the Harrow XI in 1872, as in happier circumstances he most certainly would have done. For one year he was at Oxford and then he went into the 15th Hussars. He played more than once in the Canterbury Week, and also for Dorset, and was elected a Harlequin.
