TEAMS

Henry Keigwin was in the St Paul's XI in 1899 and 1900, and although he scored heavily for Peterhouse College while at Cambridge - in 1901 and 1904 he scored 1000 runs before the end of May - he failed to break into a strong side. On April 26, 1904, he scored 140 not out, and with his brother, RP Keigwin, who made 124 not out, added 318 together for the first wicket. Nine days later, on the same ground, the same pair scored 244 without being separated for Peterhouse v. Trinity Hall. He played a few times for Essex, and (while director of music at Glenalmond) appeared in representative matches for Scotland, and turned out for Grange CC. At the Oval in 1906 he scored 77 and 27 for Gentlemen of England v. Surrey. He moved to Bulawayo, but returned to serve with the Lancashire Fusiliers on the outbreak of World War One and was killed serving on the Western Front.
