Profile

TENNYSON, THE THIRD BARON (LIONEL HALLAM TENNYSON), who died at Bexhill-on-Sea on June 6, aged 61, was a grandson of the poet and succeeded his father in the title in 1928. Intimately identified with Hampshire cricket from 1913 to 1936, he captained the county team for fourteen years from 1919 onwards. During his career he scored 16,828 runs, average 23.63, including nineteen centuries. His highest innings was 217 against the West Indies at Southampton in 1928, when, after the fall of five Hampshire wickets for 88, he and J. Newman (118) shared in a partnership of 311.
