Jack Small played between 1784 and 1811. He was noted as "a sound batsman" but, like so many sons of famous players, was not in the same class as his father. Small had over 100 recorded appearances by the end of the 1800 season. His two highest recorded scores were 95 for R Leigh's XI v Sir Horatio Mann's XI at Margate in 1795 and 88 for Lord Yarmouth's XI v R Whitehead's XI at Lord's in 1799.
