Hi, thanks for the reply, I have the Census details and birth/marriage/death together with both their Cricketing careers.......would love to find a photograph but perhaps that's a bit too much to expect. I have tied up most of the children with the exception of Bennett Mycroft. I was hoping if anyone else was researching Mycroft they may have some more details about them.

I am looking into the Mycroft Family. If you Google the name mycroft and cricket you should get to the wikapedia site on which there is some blurb on both William and Thomas. I believe my daughter in law is directly descended from William.

How far have you gone back? Have you got beyond George Mycroft bn abt 1812?

Attached shows George's parents.You will see where the Bennett name comes from.

As Brimington had no church prior til about 1814 finding a Baptism entry for either George or William has not been sucessful. They are not at Norton or Chesterfield. Do let me knowif you have more sucess.

I thought that Billy Mycock Bapt 1782/3 maybe a match but he turns out to be a definate Mycock.

Many thanks for your posting, Simon

Hi Verity
There is a strong family resemblance don't you think ?
It was my husband who found this - he is a staunch cricketing fan
I mentioned the name Mycroft and he was on to the case
Would you like me to PM a better res scan if possible ?#
