Charles Marriott was for a long period a very prominent and popular figure in the cricket world, being captain of the Leicestershire XI about fifteen years -- 1872 to 1887 -- and doing much for the county in its early days. He was three times President of the Club. Though quite a good bat at Winchester, he did not till his last year at Oxford succeed in getting his Blue. He was on the winning side against Cambridge at Lord's, but in his only innings was bowled without getting a run. He won his place for Oxford, however, strictly on his merits, scoring consistently in the trial matches at home. After his Oxford days he played a lot of cricket for the Zingari, and in later years served several times on the Committee of the M.C.C.
