Profile

It is doubtful if the name of George, 9th Earl of Winchilsea is as well-known among cricket lovers as it deserves to be. Lord Winchilsea was born in 1752 and he succeeded to the title in 1769 on the death of his uncle. He graduated from Christ Church, Oxford in 1771, the year in which he was painted by Dance, wearing the robes of a Gentleman Commoner. He became Lord Lieutenant of Rutland and he died unmarried in 1826 to be succeeded by his cousin, George William. Another portrait of Lord Winchilsea hangs in the Royal Institution where he became the first President in 1799.
