Thomas Case, born at Liverpool, July 14, 1844, died at Falmouth on October 31. Giving up the game at twenty-four he was only a name to the present generation of cricketers, but in his young days he was a first-rate batsman. He was in the Rugby eleven in 1862 and 1863, the school being at that time very rich in cricket talent. Going up to Oxford he gained his Blue as a Freshman and was in R. A. H. Mitchell's winning teams at Lord's in 1864-5. Owing to a damaged hand--injured at Southgate two days earlier--he could not play in the University match in 1866, but he reappeared in the finely-contested game won by Cambridge by five wickets--in the following year. He did not do much in his three matches against Cambridge, his scores being 13 and 5, 17 and 25, and 24 and 19. While at Rugby he hit up an innings of 170 against the Anomalies.
