Profile

Stephen Newton died in a nursing-home at Ipswich on August 16, after an operation. He was a fine and free hitter, and a most excellent field. At cover-point he was one of those who came nearest in excellence to the incomparable Vernon Royle. At Victoria College, Jersey, where he once threw the ball 120 yards in the Sports, he was in the XI for as many as seven seasons, 1866 to 1872 inclusive, heading the averages in 1867, 1868, 1869, 1870, and 1872, when he played an innings of 117 v. Elizabeth College, Jersey. He was captain during his three last years at the College. At Cambridge he obtained his Blue in 1876, but made only 7 in the match with Oxford. Between 1876 and 1890 he assisted Somerset, and captained the side from 1880 until 1884. In 1885 he appeared, under the residential qualification, for Middlesex. For some years he was Headmaster of Loudoun House School, St. John's Wood. Since 1878 he had been a member of the M.C.C. He was not related to Mr. A. E. Newton, also of Somerset.
