Charles Lennox, the fourth Duke of Richmond, was a British soldier and politician and Governor General of British North America. He was also an accomplished cricketer, a right-hand batsman and wicketkeeper, and a founder of the MCC. In 1786, together with the Earl of Winchilsea, he offered Thomas Lord a guarantee against any losses Lord might suffer on starting a new cricket ground, leading to Lord opening his first cricket ground in 1787. Usually listed as the Hon. Colonel Charles Lennox in contemporary scorecards, Lennox had 55 recorded first-class appearances from 1784 to 1800 and played a few more games after that. He was also MP for Sussex, succeeding his father, from 1790 until he succeeded to the dukedom, and found time to sire 14 children.
