Wisden obituary
CL Johnson, at one time one of the best-known Irish cricketers, died at Maraisburg, in the Transvaal, on May 31st, in his thirty-eighth year. He was born in County Kildare and educated at Dublin University, where he was in the XI from 1889 to 1893. Playing against Cambridge University at Dublin in 1892 he scored 49 and 56 against the bowling of E. C. Streatfeild, F. S. Jackson, C. M. Wells and H. R. Bromley-Davenport, and later in the year visited America as a member of the Gentlemen of Ireland's team. In 1893, owing to ill-health, he left his native country and settled in the Transvaal, and in the following year came to England as a member of the first South African team. During the tour he scored 508 runs with an average of 14.32 and took fifty wickets at a cost of 17.27 runs each. He made 112 against Liverpool and District and 79 against the Gentlemen of Ireland. He afterwards represented the Transvaal, and in March, 1896, was included in a South African XI which met Lord Hawke's team at Johannesburg. He was a fast right-handed bowler and a good bat.
