Note on Husband: Lawrence Porter (2)

"A cricket match played on the [Laleham] Burway Cricket Ground Chertsey July 6th - 7 & 8th 1775 between the Counties of Surrey and Hampshire made by Mr. Parter (sic) an extensive brewer of Chertsey." (Handwritten scorecard in the front of a scorebook in Chertsey Museum.) The cricket writer J Goulstone mentions Mr Porter who brought Lumpy [the great Surrey bowler Edward Stevens] to live at Chertsey. Presumably this is the above 'Mr. Parter'.
