John Powys Lilford, 5th Baron, who died on December 17, 1945, aged 82, played one first-class match, for Northamptonshire against the Indians in 1911. He was a moderate but enthusiastic player who carried a ball round with him in the hope of some catching practice. He was also president of Northamptonshire for 18 years and its benefactor for almost half a century; without his support the club would undoubtedly have ceased to exist.
