Tall and burly, Lord Clifton was a fast round-arm bowler and a hard-hitting batsman who was the mainstay of the Eton side in 1869 and 1870 but who faded from the scene after a handful of appearances for Kent. A volatile character, his background meant that he was tolerated rather than liked, but by the time he succeeded his father as the 7th Earl of Darnley in 1896 he was suffering from delusions and paranoia. He died four years later.
