Profile

George Bird, born at Hornsey, on July 30, 1849, died at Esher, Surrey, on October 28, aged 81. A member of the M.C.C. since 1870, he had played in many matches for the Club. He was a sound and effective batsman with a graceful style and a good field in any position. At Lord's in July, 1873, he scored 116 not out and 30 for Fifteen Gentlemen of M.C.C. (with Rylott) against R. A. FitzGerald's Anglo-American Team of 1872, that being his best performance in a match of note. Between 1872 and 1877 he took part in some Middlesex cricket and in 1880 appeared for Lancashire under the residential qualification. He was father of M. C. Bird, the old Harrovian.
