Broadhalfpenny Down was the home venue for first-class matches organised by the Hambledon Club from 1753 to 1781 and continued in regular use by Hambledon/ Hampshire teams until 1781. At the end of that season, the Hambledon Club bought and moved to Windmill Down, which is closer to the village, and the Broadhalfpenny Down ground fell into disuse through most of the nineteenth century, reverting to agricultural use. Attempts were made to restore the ground with the result that a Hambledon v England XI fixture in 1908 appears in the generally accepted list of first-class matches.

Hampshire cricketer Edward Whalley-Tooker, who played in the 1908 match, was a descendant of a member of the original Hambledon Club. Following the match in 1908 the ground was reclaimed for farming. Whalley-Tooker set about the task of securing its permanent use for cricket and in 1925 it was restored to host cricket matches. The possession of the land was given to Winchester College, with the College and Hambledon playing the first match there following its restoration. Whalley-Tooker is reported to have led the Hambledon side to victory although no scores for the match have been found

Legh Barratt. Norfolk C.C..C. 1890 to 1908. 'Robert Slade Lucas Tour of the West Indies 1894-95'. Wonderfully evocative journal/diary handwritten by Legh Barratt whilst on the pioneering Robert Slade Lucas tour of the West Indies in 1895, the first tour of the West Indies by an English team, containing the details of the matches played, his observations of the matches and the team, the people, the culture, the islands and life in the Caribbean in the mid 1890's. The journal begins when the team arrives at Waterloo station, London on Wednesday, January 16th and about to take the train to Southampton to board the SS Medway for the voyage to the West Indies and finishes on Tuesday 16th April, the day of their departure bound for England. The red leather journal, measuring 5"x8", is written mainly in black ink, but some entries to the beginning of the journal are in pencil, has a brief title to the front end paper 'L. Barratt. R.S. Lucas XI, Marine Hotel, Barbados'. He begins his journal by describing the scene at Waterloo station 'Started from Waterloo 10am, big crowd to see us off including many people I knew. Three cheers as we left station... the team seem to be a jolly lot and full of fun. A crowd see us off at Southampton and wish us god speed. I feel as though I am going away for years instead of three months'. Barratt continues to describe the journey commenting on the bad weather, gales blowing and the ship rolling, by Sunday 20th the seas are calming and the weather warming, the team plays games including cricket on the decks during the day, music and singing in the evenings. Barratt comments that 'Smith-Turberville, Priestley, Lucas and Bromley-Davenport are at present my favourites of the team'. Hurricane gale hits them on Wednesday 23rd January and they 'shipped 500 tons of water, 700 plates smashed on the voyage'. The ship enters Bridgetown Harbour on the morning of Monday 28th January 'The ship is surrounded by blacks who sell fruit and dive in a most wonderful way for coins.... a deputation arrive to welcome the cricketers. We part with our recent friends and steam for shore, where several thousand people thronged on the landing place and cheered us. We are taken in private carriages and driven to our hotel, where a most delicious breakfast was provided. In the afternoon we went to practice.... the hospitality of the people is unbounded. The strangeness and beauty of the place is unlike anything I have seen before. Everything is provided for us free of charge. The niggers follow us about and cheer us vociferously and from what they have said they evidently want us to win'. Tuesday 29th January. the day of the start of the first match 'Everywhere we are seen we are cheered and encouraged.... the excitement of everybody was intense... thousands of people in the street on their way to the ground almost stopped the carriages.... I have never laughed more or enjoyed a day so much. Made 0. Could'nt see a ball (so soon after the voyage) ... all shops were close and a general holiday was given... Rather a watery night outside and inside'.... Wednesday & Thursday 30th & 31st January. 'Everybody in the island was on the ground, there being not a vacant seat. Tide of luck went against us and we were beaten though not disgraced'.... Thursday 31st January 'We begin today cricket match v United Services... we take the wickets first and lose several of our own wickets very cheap but the tail end put on some runs, total 248. I made 56, Sewell 40, Dawson 30. We are batting the whole day.... Am getting quite used to the faces of the niggers. I agree with Froude, they are the happiest race of people I have ever seen... Friday 1st February. 'Got them all out for 124. They followed on and made 147 for 5 wickets, thus leaving the match drawn in our favour.... the stand is each day full of ladies in their brightest colours. The greatest difficulty I have at present is the evading of drinks which are being forced down me...'. Barratt continues in a similar vein giving the day to day routine of the tour, commenting on the atmosphere, the people, the cricket, the players, the dinners and social expeditions, events and gatherings with cricket matches against Barbados. 9th February 'memorable match v Barbados... the total number of runs scored is 1385 and is the 3rd record of large scoring ever chronicled. We continue today and from the first, our fielding and bowling was very good. Several of their men lost their heads and the result was that we won the match by 24 runs. Tremendous excitement, nearly all the team are individually called out and cheered by the crowd. It was indeed a day worth living for', Antigua. 14th February 'We start match versus Antigua. Eight out of the eleven are blacks playing against us, in bare feet.... finish match with Antigua, winning in an innings by 50 [69] runs. The blacks are disgusted and one was heard to give as the reason for losing that we were such big fat men while they were a mere lot of boys. One black here remarked that if they had the same food as we, they would have beaten us', St Kitts-Nevis. 17th-19th February 'At the foot of the peak is a leper asylum on the edge of the sea. We went to see them... even under these circumstances they seem fairly happy and sing hymns most beautifully. We send them some of our old cricket bats'...A big Dinner was given by the reception committee in the evening, usual toast and speeches-very good one by Priestley , St Lucia/Martinique. 21st/22nd February 'Four of us go ashore for an hour. Most amusing experiences. The dress of the Martinique girls is very charming and is world-famed. Commence match with St Lucia. Good wicket, pretty little ground. I made 27.... Finish match v St. Lucia. We won by 9 wickets, St Vincent. 25th February 'Play cricket match v St. Vincent. Very awful pitch, like a gravel road, absolutely no grass. They win a one day's match amidst great excitement. Four thousand watching... I played the billiard player of St. Vincent who was very bad indeed', Trinidad. 28th February 'Start the match v Queen's Park C.C. at 11.30. We get them out for 71 and make 165. We finish cricket match and have a most exciting finish. We won by 4 wickets, getting the runs only 1 minute to time. I was batting during the exciting time making 14 not out. Immense crowd were present quite 10,000 people. Immense excitement after the match- speeches being delivered to the crowd from the steps of the pavilion... All Trinidad. Saturday 2nd March 'We all go to the Gymkhana race meeting... two large stands paddock it all just like an English racecourse. I rode in a race and jolly nearly got killed. Feel knocked out of time this morning. I realise that I shall not be able to play cricket for some time, which is very disappointing... Eventful day'. 'Commence match versus All Trinidad. Bush and I are obliged to stand out [due to the racing accident]. A very fast black bowler (Woods 6 for 39) bowls most of the team. We are 90 behind on the 1st innings. At 4.30pm whilst everyone was watching the match, a wreath of black smoke was seen to curl up from one of the principle warehouses [It was the start of a fire never before seen in the West Indies. Thousands rushed from the ground to protest their interests, houses fell like packs of cards. Over fifty warehouses and dwelling were completely destroyed and the estimated loss was one million sterling], Demerara. 16th March 'The Demerara ground is by far the best ground in the West Indies. It exactly resembles a good, fast English wicket like 'Lord's'. We had by far the best of the first day's play. Priestley coming off for the first time... continue our match v Demerara, Davenport proved unplayable on the soft treacherous wicket and we eventually won by 10 wickets' Demerara. 19th March, 'We start a return match v Demerara- I play again for the first time since my fall in Trinidad. We lost the toss and had to field out nearly all the day in the hottest sun we have yet experienced. I was not very fit so felt it more. It was a most perfect wicket and it was quite a pleasure fielding on such a beautiful ground... we should have continued the match... but rain came in torrents with no cessation from 11 o'clock until 3. It was terribly disappointing especially to Demerara C.C. as they had gone to the trouble of erecting stands at a great expense and they were robbed of half the gate money.... the day of departure from Demerara has arrived... a large party of our recent friends... came on the launch to see us off on the Dee.... Voyage to Barbados en route to Jamaica. The weather is good and the sea fairly calm... On Saturday morning we arrived at Bridgetown. I spent most of the morning writing mail letters and buying curiosities... Smith-Tuberville alias the 'Long'un' suddenly made up his mind to go home to England on the 'Don' which sailed today for Southampton. He made up his mind very suddenly and it was only 3 hours before the boat sailed that he decided. He only told Lucas anything about his going' Friday March 29th. 'At 6am in the morning we find ourselves anchored in Kingston Harbour, Jamaica. On landing... we were driven to the cricket ground to have a sumptuous lunch. We afterwards practised cricket and had Lohmann (brother of the Surrey man) to bowl to us. He is very like his brother and has a very good berth here as groundsman and professional. We start the match versus All Jamaica. We soon find they are much weaker than we are. They go in first and playing with little or no confidence only compile 72. Our innings was not completed the first day but we eventually made 215. The wicket was very good although the out fielding was rather rough..... we finished the match... winning by an innings and 90 runs. The enthusiasm over cricket does not seem to run so high in Jamaica as in other colonies and there were no more than three thousand people (who paid for admission) watching the match. Several thousands who did not care to pay admission got a peep at the match from different vantage points. Many from the tops of the trees and it was very comical to see them huddled together on the boughs of some trees like a nest of rooks'... Jamaica Born. Tuesday 2nd April 'They meet with no better fate than the 'All Jamaica team' did and were eventually beaten by an innings and 97 runs. We found a scorpion in one of the cricket bags. I got it put into a jar which I still retain'... Western Jamaica, Montego Bay. Friday 5th April 'We start today the match v West Jamaica. The ground looked very cheerful with flags all round it and a band started in the morning and played all day. The stand was well filled in the afternoon. Things started rather badly for us as Priestley was bowled by the first ball and four wickets were down for about 20. However Bush and Barker made a good stand.... I took 20 and then was umpired out.... we finish match with West Jamaica winning easily by an innings and 60 runs'. North Jamaica. Monday 8th April 'We started the cricket match versus North Jamaica and found it a very bad wicket. The ball bumped a great deal and frequently just missed ones chin.... We finish match v North Jamaica winning by seven wickets. There was a very good attendance each day, carriages being drawn up along two sides of the ground'... All Jamaica. 10th/11th April 'Although we had enjoyed our stay in the country very much and had seen many wonderful sights well worth seeing, still I was not sorry to get back to Kingston and have a fixed place of abode for a few days and also to get rid of the ticks of which we all got a fresh supply in the Fern Valley'.... 'We started our last match of the tour versus All Jamaica. They made several alterations in their previous team which proved beneficial to them. Our eyes were evidently suffering a little from the long glaring drives along the dusty white coral rounds, and our fielding was far from good.... We finish the match losing by 8 wickets. This makes our 4th match lost in the West Indies. I made 10 no and 12 (in four hits). The wicket crumbled after the first 200 runs. The Jamaicans were very pleased to get one out of the five contested matches'. Monday 16th April. The day of our departure from Jamaica has arrived with all its packing, rushing about, card leaving and farewells... A great many people came to see us off and amid the usual enthusiastic farewells and waving of many handkerchiefs we steamed away from the coral strand of Jamaica where we had spent such a pleasant time'. The journal includes an original photograph of the touring team with opponents (unknown) in front of a pavilion with Barratt seated on the front row in cap and without blazer and a small original two sided printed 'Programme. Jamaica Club. Ball in honour of English Cricketers' with dances and music listed to verso, some adhesive marks to verso. There are also what appears to be Barratt's preliminary notes/writings on the start of the tour to the back of the book in pencil, which appear to have been once the front of the book. Also the names and part addresses of ten of the members of the touring party noted by Barratt. There is also a note dated 18th August 1895 suggesting that the journal might be published, it never was... The journal consists of one hundred and forty six pages of handwritten text and cuttings and contains almost 20,000 handwritten words.

A remarkably comprehensive, vivid and diverting journal/diary of this seminal tour of the West Indies undertaken one hundred and twenty six years ago. A unique insight into a player's life on tour covering both the cricket matches, travel and social history of that time. Barratt has never before left the shores of England and he often finds the sights he sees miraculous in his eyes and is filled with awe. He had never, I would imagine, have seen a person of colour up to that point in his life.......

The tourists won ten of the matches played, with two draws and four defeats. The touring team consisted of R.S. Lucas (Middlesex, Captain), M.M. Barker (M.C.C.), L. Barratt (Norfolk), R. Berens & H.R. Bromley-Davenport (Cambridge University & Middlesex), F.W. Bush (Surrey), J.M. Dawson, R.L. Marshall & A.A. Priestley (M.C.C.), R.P. Sewell (Kent & Essex), H.T. Smith-Turberville (M.C.C.), W.H. Wakefield and J.H. Weatherby. All were amateurs and only seven of the thirteen ever played first class cricket. Legh Barratt was by all accounts an accomplished all round cricketer who could bat, bowl and field well, however his other talents of billiards (which are mentioned in the journal), bridge, horse riding, the piano, fiddle and music would make him a good tourist. He was also a keen watercolourist.

Legh Barratt. Norfolk C.C..C. 1890 to 1908. 'Arthur Priestley tour of the West Indies in 1896-97'. Excellent and interesting journal/diary handwritten by Legh Barratt whilst on the tour of the West Indies in 1896-97, the second tour of the West Indies by an English team, containing the details of the matches played, his observations of the matches and his team, the people, the culture, the islands and life in the Caribbean in the mid to late 1890's. The journal begins when the team arrives at Waterloo station, London, travel to Southampton to board the SS Medway for the voyage to the West Indies on Thursday 30th December and finishes rather abruptly on Monday 21st February in between the first and second touring matches against Trinidad {the reason for this is unknown], so the journal covers ten of the sixteen matches played on the tour. The black leather journal, measuring 5.25"x8", with silver metal lock to side, is written in black ink. Brief title to the first page reads 'Cricket tour to the West Indies starting Dec[ember] 30[th] [18]96' and the journal begins 'Quite a crowd to see us off at Waterloo Station. We travel together in saloon to Southampton. Meet John Watson at Southampton, he has lunch on Medway and sees me off'.... Steamed out of the docks at 3.30 and we soon lost sight of the little crowd on the landing stage.... soon lost sight of the needles and began to feel the Bay of Biscay roll which caused three of team to summarily seek their berths'. December 31st & Jan 1st & 2nd. 'Rather dreary days - no life on the ship, everyone ill or uncomfortable ...... During these days I found several opportunities for long talks with Stoddart (The greatest amateur cricketer of his day). From these conversations on his cricket life and Australian experiences I gathered that it is still true that - real greatness and modesty always go together'. Barratt relates several amusing stories of events that happened on board ship. January 3rd. 'Calm weather, climate becoming delicious - Begin to put on summer clothing. Everyone getting well and cheering up- Voyage begins to get really enjoyable - never felt fitter....January 7th. Barratt informs us of his daily routine on board ship, breakfast, talk, games in the morning, cricket practice in the afternoons, dinner dancing and music in the evenings. January 10th 'Arrive 2pm at Barbados. People on shore very much surprised to see the mail not expected until Monday - Niggers soon got wind of it and came rushing down to meet us at the wharf. I happened to be in carriage with Stoddart and Sam Woods ' the blacks soon found out this and set up a stampede after the carriage shouting their names'... January 13th/14th 'Start cricket match versus [All] Barbados. Disastrous result. We went in first and made 106. Barbados made 172 for 2 wickets..... Enthusiasms of crowds today baffles description many of them up the trees. Got all Barbados out for 275 we went in and got about 120 losing by an innings and 40 runs. Our first quiet evening and we well wanted it to brood over our defeat'. January 15th/16th 'Play St Vincent. Put them in on a bad wicket and get them all out for 51 - English 275 for five wickets - Stoddart not out 153. Fancy dress ball at the club very fine affair for Barbados about 400 there - Enjoy it immensely ' cricket team allowed to go in plain evening clothes ' up till 4am. Declare innings and getting them out cheaply the second time, win by an innings and 120 runs'..... January 18th/19th '2nd match v. [All] Barbados. Indignation of niggers not being allowed into ground free of charge. Many of them assisted over the pailings by a very tall nigger who charged 1d for men and ¬1/2d for boys for so doing'..... Continue match on sticky wicket winning amidst intense excitement by 3 wickets - Very jolly dinner in the evening with the Bishop of Barbados who is a keen cricketer. Sam Woods gets a little in the wind and slaps him on the back and calls him 'old cock' much to the amusement of his Lordship'.... January 21st/22nd/23rd 'Got Barbados out for 130. Rain commenced and stopped play. (Very unfortunate for us as we were batting on a good wicket)... Went in the morning very bad wicket and we were all out for 77. Barbados made about 160 and left us about 220 to get to win. We made a wretched display on a good wicket and could only put together 97 losing by an innings and 130 runs.....Raced the buggies home to the hotel, very damp evening!'... January 25th 'Got back to Bridgetown about 3 o'clock meet Hawke's team (just arrived) in club who had been very badly received in Barbados. Brom[ley] Davenport and Dawson as friendly as before, but I doubt their sincerity - did not see Wakefield. Sail in evening for Antigua and Leeward Islands - Much stirrup cup drinking with Reception Committee'. January 27th. 'Arrive Antigua 12 noon. Go ashore in launch brought by Reception Committee. The harbour here swarming with sharks see two or three huge monsters following the launch and I guess anyone falling overboard would but be in great request.... Practice cricket in the afternoon. quiet evening'. January 28th/29th/30th. 'Start match v Antigua, we go in first and make 270 ' Stoddart 107. myself 96 ' the blacks do not now play in bare feet as they did two years ago ' Stoddart was batting almost all my innings at the other wicket and it is indeed a pleasure and an experience to be opposite such a batsman.... Continue match which is going greatly in our favour and looks like being a hollow affair..... Win match in an innings ' after lunch Stanley and I go for a ride up into the country although the very fact of being in the saddle in itself was enjoyable, the country was not nearly so picturesque as we had seen in other islands'... January 31st. February 1st/2nd 'We leave Antigua in the 'Taymouth Castle' for St. Kitts..... Start match versus St Kitts ' the cricket ground is situated very picturesquely on an eminence overlooking the town and harbour of Basse Terre mountains on one side and sugar plantations all round it. Stoddart took another 100 although missed in his first over. Was umpired out myself. Spent quiet evening at club. Continue match we got 269 and the island team collapsed entirely before our bowling and we won easily in an innings with plenty of runs to spare'. February 3rd, 4th. The touring party travel to St.Lucia, leaving C.C. Stone (a fellow cricketer) behind due to fever, past Montserrat and arrive at Dominica. They visit Mr Wilson's Cocoa Estate 'The house and gardens were the most picturesque and enchanting I think I have ever seen. Perched upon a little eminence, you look right down the valley from his garden and see the river in a silver streak stretching for miles. It reminded me more than anything ever else did of my idea of the Garden of Eden. Humming birds and gorgeous butterflies flutter about the luxuriant foliage where the deepest shade of brightest sunshine were to be found'.... February 5th. They then head back to St. Lucia, match cancelled due to rain, they then head the same day to Bridgetown, Barbados for the next match. February 6th/8th 'United Services. 6 Soldiers and 5 Sailors. We go in first and get 252, they get 130 and 110. Champain seemed to be their best bat. De Robee a very good wicket keep. We win in a innings by 11 runs. Priestley, Stanley and Self go to dinner in the evening on flagship 'Crescent' where we have a most enjoyable time. Priestley started arguing on cricket and never stopped until it was time to go, played whist ' grand evening'. February 7th. Interesting account of a shark fishing/ harpooning expedition, February 8th 'The afternoon's pleasure somewhat spoilt by having a cable from Antigua to say that Stone was seriously ill. Priestly wired to his people, sail in the evening for Trinidad'. February 10th 'Arrive Trinidad 6am.... Very good welcome from Committee of Reception.... Great preparations for the centenary are in evidence practice cricket in the afternoon on the new ground, receive mail letters'. February 11th, 12th 'Was the day for inaugurating our cricket in Trinidad it started with a match versus the Q.P.C.C [Queens Park Cricket Club].... We continued in brilliant weather. Q.P.C.C scored 216. English team 187 for 1 wicket. Stoddart 108 not out, Stanley 63 not out. Ladies pavilion filled to overflowing, great delight was shown at Stoddarts batting as he hit in grand style'.... February 14th, 15th 16th 'Start match versus All West Indies. We went in on a hard wicket and made 179. All W.I went in and amassed 215 - a bad decision with regard to Austin was mainly responsible for this score as he scored about 50 after he was unmistakably out.... We had 6 wickets down for 41 and looked winners all over. But Constantine (a black) played very well and we were eventually defeated by 3 wickets. Lunch on board H.M.S 'Cordelia'. February 17th. Interesting account of the Trinidad Gymkhana Races which the team went to. February 18th to 21st. Long account of the match v All Trinidad 'We expected to find this quite as tight a struggle as the match v the Combined XI had been for they have best inter West Indian bowler, Cumberbatch and also the renowned 'Float' (alias Woods) whom we know to be equally as good a bowler as Clifford Goodman of Barbados. This presentiment of ours was more than fully borne out and we suffered defeat by 10 wickets. We lost the toss and they compiled 170. We made a fearful exhibition and were dismissed for 30 ' It seemed almost incredible that such a team as ours could possibly get dismissed for such a small total but such is the uncertainty of the game'.... February 21st '. Barratt analyses the match and gives six reasons for the defeat 'Firstly the magnificent play and dogged pluck of the opposing side'.... 3. That Stoddart was not at all well and entirely out of form and that Woods was suffering from rheumatism in his bowling arm and shoulder'... The journal abruptly stops at this point and there are no further entries, even though six matches on the tour remain to be played, the remaining fixture in Trinidad and the five matches in Jamaica. The reason why Barratt does not continue the journal is unknown....The journal includes an original real photograph of the team having lunch on board H.M.S. Cordelia on February 19th, original press cuttings giving details of the matches, events played etc. The journal consists of seventy four pages of handwritten text and cuttings and contains just over 6000 handwritten words. An interesting, vivid and evocative journal/diary of this second tour of the West Indies. A unique insight into the players life on the tour covering both the cricket matches, travel and social history of that time

The tourist's won ten of the matches played, with one draw and five defeats. This second touring team was a much stronger team than the previous 1894-95 team and consisted of Arthur Priestley (M.C.C., Captain), A.E. Stoddart, C.A. Beldam and W. Williams (Middlesex), S.M.J. Woods, R.C.N. Palairet and H.T. Stanley (Somerset), R.P. Lewis (Oxford), C.C. Stone (Leicestershire), F.W. Bush, Legh Barratt, J. Leigh and Dr G. Elliott. Legh Barratt was by all accounts an accomplished all round cricketer who could bat, bowl and field well, however his other talents of billiards (which are mentioned n the journal), bridge, horse riding, the piano, fiddle and music would make him a good tourist. He was also a keen watercolourist. There was some controversy over this tour as Lord Hawke had been asked to take the 1896-97 touring team out to the West Indies following an invitation from the Governor of British Guiana and from Trinidad, Barbados and Jamaica. Unfortunately his telegram accepting the islands' invitations was never received and another English Party (this one) led by A. Priestley was being arranged, having accepted an invitation from Jamaica. Lord Hawke met Priestley, but the two could not come to an amicable settlement and both decided to go independently to the West Indies. In the issue of 'Cricket' for 8th April 1897 was published the correspondence between Mr Priestley and Lord Hawke, and it would appear from the details set out that Hawke treated Priestley in a rather high-handed manner.... Lord Hawke's touring party played its first match sixteen days after Priestley's first match...
