Profile

Frederick Lee was in the Rugby Eleven in 1858 and 1859, and in the Cambridge Eleven in 1860. He appeared for Surrey in 1861-62, but did not secure a regular place in F. P. Miller's famous team. It cannot be said that he did anything remarkable in first-class cricket, but he was good enough--on the strength of his batting and fine fielding-to be picked for Gentlemen v. Players at the Oval in 1861 and 1862. The second of the two matches has secured him a modest place in cricket history, Out-living Mr. Edward Dowson and Lord Cobham, he was the last survivor of the memorable game which was left drawn in 1862, the Players at the close requiring 33 runs to win with two wickets to fall. Perhaps no other drawn match has been so often talked about in the Pavilion at the Oval. Mr. Dowson referred to it the last time I met of 1920. Curiously enough the not outs for the Players- George Anderson and H. H. Stephenson-scored 33 each. The man left to go in was Tom Lockyer, and he was in a very disturbed state in the old players' gallery, because he so dreaded V. E. Walker's lobs. Mr. Lee played a distinguished part in the match, getting 35 in his first innings. He and F. P. Miller gave such help to John Walker--whose 98 was the innings of his life--that the Gentlemen scored 276 after having had six wickets down for 70. Never losing his keen interest in cricket, Mr. Lee was a member of the Surrey Committee till nearly the end of his long life, resigning in 1922. He served on the M.C.C. Committee from 1878 to 1882 and again from 1883 to 1887.
