John Beaumont (cricketer)

John Beaumont (cricketer)

John Beaumont was a first-class cricketer who played for Surrey County Cricket Club and Yorkshire County Cricket Club between 1877 and 1890.

He was a fearsome right arm fast bowler who took 467 wickets at the excellent average of 16.71 with a best of 8 for 40 against Yorkshire for his adopted Surrey. Like most fast bowlers he was always highly motivated when playing against a former county, taking 46 wickets against the Tykes at just 12.47 apiece. He was less accomplished as a right handed tail end batsman, scoring 881 runs at 8.31 with a highest score of 60 against Gloucestershire.

He played just 4 matches for his native county before moving to Surrey, for whom he played 91 times. He also appeared for GF Vernon's XI, L Hall's XI and the South of England. He umpired several matches, including 4 of the famous 'Gentlemen v Players' games.

He was born on September 16, 1854 at Armitage Bridge, Yorkshire and died, aged 65, on May 1, 1920 in Lambeth, London.
