Profile

John Montague, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, was famous far beyond the world of cricket. For one thing, the sandwich is named after him; for another, although he was a career politician, it was said that his incompetence and corruptness meant that he achieved almost nothing despite holding some of the highest offices in the land; the Sandwich Islands, (now Hawaii), which were discovered by Captain Cook in 1778, were also named in his honour.
