Date of Birth: 21 July 1863

C. Aubrey Smith biography:

Around Hollywood, Sir Aubrey was perhaps best known as team captain of the Hollywood Cricket Club. In fact, the club's home field and clubhouse in Los Angeles' Griffith Park was named for Sir Aubrey in 1933. Although the Hollywood Cricket club wasn't particularly successful on the field, it did feature numerous British emigre actors of the era. Was the inspiration for the Commander McBragg character on the "Tennessee Tuxedo and His Tales" (1963) cartoon TV show. Brother-in-law of playwright/novelist Cosmo Hamilton (married Smith's sister). In the late 1880s, while he was mining for gold in South Africa, he developed pneumonia and was wrongly pronounced dead by doctors. His only (cricket) Test Match appearance was the 1st Test against South Africa at Crusaders Ground, St George's Park, Port Elizabeth on 12-13 March 1889. It was actually a 3 day match but finished early. He was the best of the England bowlers picking up 5-19 off 13.2 overs (154 balls as these were 4-ball overs) in the first innings and 2-42 off 25 in the second. He scored 3 runs in the first innings, batting at no. 8, and was not required to bat in the second as England won the match for the loss of only 2 wickets. He captained the England side. This was England's first tour to South Africa and, during it, he took 134 wickets at an average of 7.61. He stayed in South Africa after the tour and captained Transvaal. His knighthood, in 1944, was for services to Anglo-American amity.
