Harry Jupp was a broad-shouldered opening batsman for Surrey whose strong defensive technique earned him the sobriquet of 'Young Stonewaller.' He opened the batting in the first two Tests, in 1876-77, and top-scored for England with 63 in the first innings at Melbourne. A reliable fielder in the outfield or a cover point, he turned out for Surrey for 19 years before retiring at the end of 1881. He once replaced the bails after being bowled from the first ball of a local match, and the umpire asked why he wasn't leaving. 'Not at Dorking I ain't,' he said.
