Profile

The Darnley family was one of the leading lights in kent, if not English, cricket during much of the 19th century, and while the 6th Earl's abilities were limited - he made just one first-class outing for the Gentlemen of Kent - he played an important role as an administrator, and was president of Kent and MCC.
