Thomas Hearne, who died on May 25, 1947, aged 59, was called late to take part in his only first-class match, for Middlesex against the Gentlemen of Philadelphia at Lord's in 1908, as a replacement for his cousin J. T. Hearne. However, the game was played on a treacherous pitch and finished in a day; Hearne, arriving late afternoon, never took the field. Many of his relatives were better-known cricketers; he did play usefully for Berkshire.
