Profile

Secretary of MCC for 21 years from 1876, Henry Perkins has remained rather a shadowy figure in the history of Lord's, although only his successor, Sir Francis Lacey, has held office for longer. Sydney Pardon described him in Wisden as "an easy-going autocrat", which might lend some credence to the story, related by Sir Pelham Warner, that when handing over to his successor, Perkins advised Lacey, "Don't take any notice of the Committee!"
