Profile

THE VENERABLE FRANCIS LEAR, late Archdeacon of Sarum, who died at Salisbury on February 19, was born at Dounton, Wilts., on August 23, 1823, and was thus one of the oldest of cricketers. At Winchester, where he was contemporary with V. C. Smith and Fred Gale, he was in the Eleven in 1841, scoring 0 and 1 v. Harrow, and 1 and 11 v. Eton. In 1843 and 1844 he played for Oxford against Cambridge, scoring 1 and 6 in the former year and 6 in the latter. He lived practically all his life in the Salisbury diocese and served under six Bishops.
