Marcus Trevelyan Martin, died on June 5th in Portland Place, W., after an operation for appendicitis. He was born at Barrackpore, in India, on April 29th, 1842, and was educated at Rugby, where he was in the Eleven from 1858 to 1861. During his last year at the school he was chosen to assist the Gentlemen of the North against the Gentlemen of the South at the Oval, and he thoroughly justified his selection by playing an innings of 63. He obtained his Blue as a Freshman in 1862, but made only 13 against Oxford, although earlier in the season he had played a not-out innings of 103 against a Cambridgeshire side which included the famous Buttress. In 1864 he made 53 v. M. C. C. at Fenner's and 90 v. Surrey at the Oval, but again proved a disappointment in the Lord's match, scoring only 3 runs in his two innings. He appeared for Middlesex in 1870 and occasionally assisted Warwickshire. In addition to being a good and safe bat he was a fair wicketkeeper.
