Perceval Jeffery Thornton Henery, died on August 10, at Washford, Somerset, aged 79. He twice played in the Harrow XI against Eton, the second time in 1878, when, thanks largely to his 45 and 7 wickets for 106 runs, Harrow won a splendid match by 20 runs. Twice in the Cambridge XI when Oxford were beaten, each time by seven wickets, he scored 61 on his first appearance for the Light Blues in 1882 but did not bowl. Of medium height, he was a hard hitting batsman, slow round-arm bowler with decided break and a brilliant fieldsman. Regarded as the best all-rounder of his time at Harrow, Henery played for Middlesex from 1879 to 1894, his best year being 1892 when he averaged 23.12.
