His Honor Sir Edward Bray, County Court Judge of Bloomsbury and Brentford, died in London on June 19, aged 77. Born at Shere, in Surrey, on August 19th, 1849, he was descended from Sir Thomas More, Chancellor of Henry VIII. A capital slow bowler, he played for five years in the Westminster XI ( 1864 to 1868), and in 1871 and 1872 gained his Blue at Cambridge, taking in the two games against Oxford ten wickets for exactly 12 runs each. Between 1870 and 1878 he assisted Surrey on 14 occasions, doing little with the bat but obtaining 48 wickets at a cost of 15.45 runs apiece. In the Westminster v Charterhouse match at Lord's in 1867 he took as many as 17 wickets - 9 for 26 runs in the first innings, and on the same ground four years later had the great satisfaction of getting WG Grace caught for 4 in each innings in the game between Cambridge University and MCC. One of his sons was a Cambridge cricket Blue of 1896 and 1897. Wisden Cricketers' Almanack
