Hi

My 3xgreat grandfather Thomas Edgington 1822-1885 was a rail labourer in 1851 but in 1861 and 1881 censuses he says he was a cricketer. When his son James married in 1878 he said his father was a professional cricketer and when Thomas died in 1885 the cert said he was a cricketer.

He lived in St Peter Le Bailey, Oxford City most of his life. He was born in Wootton, Berkshire.

Is there any way I can find out more info on his cricketing career?

Ben
