William Chatterton, one of the greatest of Derbyshire cricketers, died of consumption at Flowery Field, Hyde, on March 19th, in his 50th year. For many years he occupied a high position among professional batsmen, and it was due largely to him that his county was reinstated among the first-class sides in 1894. Although he had many strokes, his batting was essentially watchful and steady. That his careful methods paid is proved by the fact that for Derbyshire alone his scored 11,619 runs with an average of 25.15. In addition, he took 199 wickets for the county at a cost of just under 23 runs each. For the M.C.C. also his all-round cricket was often most valuable, and for Mr. W. W. Read"s team in South Africa in 1891-2-his only colonial tour-he was by far the biggest run-getter. His chief scores in important cricket were as follows:-

113 Derbyshire v. Essex, at Leyton, 1886.
168 Derbyshire v. Essex, at Leyton, 1889.
106 Derbyshire v. Yorkshire, at Derby, 1891.
101* Derbyshire v. Yorkshire, at Derby, 1893.
127 Derbyshire v. Leicestershire, at Derby, 1895.
111 Derbyshire v. Essex, at Leyton, 1896.
104 Derbyshire v. Lancashire, at Manchester, 1896.
120 Derbyshire v. Essex, at Leyton, 1897.
142 Derbyshire v. Hampshire, at Derby, 1898.
169 Derbyshire v. Gloucestershire, at Bristol, 1901.
109* M.C.C. v. Lancashire, at Lord"s, 1892.
113 M.C.C. v. Cambridge University, at Cambridge, 1894.

In Derbyshire"s match with Essex at Leyton in 1896 he scored 111 and 85 not out, probably only the closure of the innings preventing him from obtaining two separate hundreds. Between 1889 and 1898 he appeared in eight matches for the Players against the Gentlemen, and, with 58 at Hastings in 1891 as his highest score, made 248 runs with an average of 20.66.
