Profile

Lord George Francis Hamilton, GCSI, third son of the first Duke of Abercorn, was born at Brighton on December 17, 1845, and died in London on September 22, aged 81. Scores and Biographies described him as a hard hitter, an active field, generally at cover-slip, and an exceedingly straight and fast under-hand bowler. In 1862 he only just failed to secure a place in the Harrow XI. He had been a member of the MCC for 64 years, and in 1881 was the club's president. He had served on the committee of the now long-defunct Prince's Club, and in 1919 was president of Kent. From 1876 until 1906 Lord George was vice-president of the Middlesex. He held office as First Lord of the Admiralty for six years, and was Secretary of State for India for eight. At Chislehurst in 1864 he did the hat-trick for Peripateties v. West Kent.
