Percie Chater Charlton, who died at Sydney on September 30, aged 87, was a member of the Australian team which visited England under W. L. Murdoch in 1890, taking part in two Test Matches. During the tour he scored 534 runs, average 14.30, and with fast-medium bowling took 42 wickets, average 19.04. He played his early cricket for the Ivanhoe and Belvedere clubs in Sydney, N.S.W., and first achieved prominence when, for Eighteen Sydney Juniors in 1888, he took seven wickets, including that of Shrewsbury, against Shaw, Shrewsbury and James Lillywhite's English team. Ill-health limited his first-class career.
