Rev. Canon Theophilus Greatorex, of the Harrow XIs of 1882 and 1883, died suddenly in London on July 27. In 1883 he was awarded the Ebrington Cup for his batting. He appeared in a couple of matches for Middlesex the same year, and played for Cambridge University in 1884, 1885 and 1886, but did not get his blue. His highest score in county cricket was 44 not out in his first season for Middlesex, for whom he made isolated appearances in 1892 and played for the county's second XI as far on as 1896. He had a fine, free style of batting, but whilst practising at Cambridge early in 1884 broke a finger and this greatly interfered with his play. After his cricketing days he became Rector of Guildford, Western Australia.
