William Denison was an important figure in cricket history as he was the first true cricket journalist, reporting on matches for several newspapers all over the country. F.S. Ashley-Cooper considered him to be 'the father of English journalism'. 'Sketches of the Players' was the earliest collection of player biographies. Dedicated to 'the Noblemen and Gentlemen, Members of the Marylebone Cricket Club', it is largely about Denison's contemporaries, though beginning with the earlier figure of Alfred Mynn. 'The Cricketer's Companion' was published over four years from 1844 to 1847, and set the precedent for Lillywhite's Guide and Wisden's Almanack.

Augustus Orlebar played one first-class match, for Oxford University v M.C.C. at Magdalen Ground, Oxford, 22nd & 23rd May 1845. Batting at number eleven he scored 1 and 0, did not bowl and took no catches.

Tom Hughes wrote 'Tom Brown's School Days, first published in 1857, based on his experiences at Rugby School from 1834 to 1842. Thomas Arnold was headmaster at the school from 1828 to 1841. Opinions differ on the veracity of the claim that the Tom Brown character was partly based on Orlebar with some sources suggesting Hughes' brother, George, as a candidate. Arthur Penrhyn 'Dean' Stanley was Dean of Westminster from 1864 to 1881
