The Rev. George Langton Hodgkinson, born at Kentish Town on October 13, 1837, died at Chipping manor, Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, on February 16. Scores and Biographies said of him: Is a pretty batsman, being a good forward player and leg hitter. Also a fine field and catch, generally taking cover-slip, and an excellent shot at the wicket. He was in the Harrow Eleven in 1854 and two following years, and in his two matches against Eton (both of which Harrow won)--the side did not meet in 1856--scored 17 runs in three innings. At Oxford he obtained his blue as a freshman, but in his three matches against Cambridge did very little, scoring but 15 runs in five innings. That he was regarded as a good player, however, is evident from the fact that in 1858 he appeared at the Oval for Gentlemen v. Players, scoring 3 and 5 and taking one wicket--Caffyn's--for 13 runs. In 1861 he assisted Middlesex against M.C.C. and Ground at Lord's scoring 22. Since 1876 he had been Prebendary of Lincoln Cathedral.
