The details (from wikipedia)


The Honourable Edward Harbottle Grimston (born 2 April 1812 at Mayfair, London; died 4 May 1881 at Pebmarsh, Essex) was an English amateur cricketer and a Conservative Party politician who held a seat in the House of Commons from 1835 to 1841.



Grimston was mainly associated with Oxford University and Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). He made 30 known appearances in first-class matches from 1832 to 1849.

He was a right-handed batsman (RHB) and an underarm medium pace bowler.


Grimston was elected at the 1835 general election as one of the two Members of Parliament (MPs) for the borough of St Albans in Hertfordshire. He was re-elected in 1837, but resigned his seat in 1841 by the procedural device of appointment as Steward of the Chiltern Hundreds.


After resigning his parliamentary seat, Grimston took holy orders and was rector of Pebmarsh (a parish of which his father was patron) from 1841 until his death in 1881.


Grimston was the second son of James Grimston, 1st Earl of Verulam. Three of his brothers James, Robert and Francis all played first-class cricket, as did his son Walter and his nephew Lord Hyde.
