Profile

George Vernon, who died at Elmina, West Africa, on August 10th, was scarcely one of the great batsmen of his day, but he had a long and distinguished career in the cricket field. Born in June, 1856, he made his first appearance at Lord's as a member of the Rugby XI in 1873, and so recently as 1897 he took part in first-class matches, making scores of over 50 against both the Universities. For many years he played regularly for Middlesex, and for that county and the M.C.C. the greater part of his best work was done.
