Jesse Bollard Hide, who was born at Eastbourne on March 12, 1857, died at Edinburgh on March 19, aged 67. A useful steady batsman and fast bowler and a good field at point and long-stop, he played his first match for Sussex in 1876 and his last in 1893, but he did not assist the side between 1878 and 1883, being engaged at Adelaide, in Australia. For the county he made 4,691 runs with an average of 16.12 and took 460 wickets for 20.87 runs each. Against Kent at Hove he scored 112 in 1884 and 173 in 1886, and on the same ground he also made 115 v. Cambridge University in 1887 and 130 v Gloucestershire in 1888. Against Lancashire at Manchester in 1885 he had eight wickets in an innings for 47 runs, and in the match with MCC at Lord's in 1890 took four wickets -- those of Flowers, WJ Ford, CW Wright and JS Russel -- with consecutive balls. For 15 of South Australia against The Australian XI of 1882, at Adelaide in 1882-3, he bowled 64 balls for one run--a remarkable feat against so strong a team. In minor matches for Eastbourne he accomplished several noteworthy performances. Thus, in 1883 he took all ten wickets for 11 runs v M.C.C., and two years later, against Bexley, his figures were 8 for 43 and all ten for 39. In the latter match he also played an innings of 115. For Sussex Club and Ground v 17 Colts in 1890 he had an analysis of 14 overs for 1 run and one wicket. His benefit match was Sussex v Nottinghamshire at Hove in 1894. Commencing in 1896, he assisted Cornwall for a few seasons, and for that county he obtained 14 wickets v Glamorganshire at Swansea in 1897, and a Dozen v Dorset at Truro a year later, also playing an innings of 84 in the latter match.
