AN OXFORD AND ENGLAND CRICKETER
Edward Fernando Sutton Tylecote was born at Marston Rectory, Bedfordshire, the son of Cannon Tylecote on June 23, 1849. His three brothers all went, like him, to clifton and Oxford, and one of them, H. G., played for Oxford in 1872-3, and was the only man to bowl unchanged through both innings of a University match. E. F. S. was in the Clifton XI in 1864 and the following years. He went up to St. John's College, and was in the Oxford XI from 1869 to 1872, being captain in 1871-2, an unusual distinction. He took first in both the Mathematical Schools and the University Junior Mathematical Scholarship, and was for many years a Fereday Fellow of St. John's College. From 1875 to 1895 he was mathematical tutor at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich.
Tylecote played for Kent in 1875, for Bedfordshire from 1876 to 1880, and for Kent again from 1881 to 1883. At Clifton, playing in the Classical v. Modern in May, 1868, he made the remarkable score of 404 not out, going in first and carrying his bat. But this record was beaten in the same match in 1899 by another boy who made 628 not out. E. F. S. was the sole survivor of the famous University match of 1870, in which F. C. Cobden performed the hat trick for
Cambridge, snatching a victory by taking Oxford's last three wickets when the Dark Blues looked so much the winners that many spectators left the field thinking the game was practically over.
Tylecote's highest innings for Kent was 104 v. Sussex at Maidstone in 1881.
His last century for Kent was against the Australians at Canterbury.
In 1882-3 he visited Australia as a member of the Hon. Ivo Bligh's team, and in his first test match at Melbourne in December made the highest score in each innings, 33 and 38. In 1886 he played for England against Australia at Lord's and the Oval. He thus played in six Test Matches against Australia. He probably held the record for appearances for the Gentlemen. He played from 1873 to 1883 and in 1886. In the match at Lord's in 1883 he made 107 in two hours and a halfwithout giving a chance. Of Tylecote's play "Scores and Biographies" said, "As a bat he is steadiness itself, being also a fine free hitter. He is also an excellent wicket-keeper. In Gentlemen v. Players at the Oval in 1876 Tylecote stumped two and caught five."
It was not for loss of form or lack of interest in the game that he retired at the age of 35, but owing to a knee injury. His outdoor hobby after leaving cricket was collecting butterflies and moths. His collection, which consisted of rare European Specimens, he gave to the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. After leaving Woolwich Academy he went to live at Bournemouth, and later at Hunstanton. He married in 1905 Annie Louisa, daughter of Mr. G. Y. Robson, barrister-at-law, but leaves no children
