Profile

Dr. Henry Grace, the eldest member of the famous cricket family, died on from an attack of apoplexy. Though never coming prominently before the public, like his younger brothers, E ., WG, and GF, Dr. Henry was, in his young days, an excellent cricketer, and but for the calls of his profession would probably have played more frequently in important matches. He is described as having been a vigorous bat, a medium-pace round-arm bowler, and an excellent field - mostly at point. He appeared at Lord's for the first time on July 18 and 19, 1861, and, with a first innings of 63 not out, materially helped the South Wales Club to beat the MCC by seven wickets. The match is a historical one, inasmuch as it introduced Mr. EM Grace to Lord's ground. Dr. Henry Grace was from the formation of the county club an enthusiastic supporter of Gloucestershire cricket, and was never absent from the county matches played at home.
