Who is Butler?
Butler was an English cricketer who played in major matches for London Cricket Club during the 1740s. He is recorded in cricket's oldest surviving scorecard playing for London against Slindon at the Artillery Ground on Saturday, 2 June 1744. He scored 18 runs. Slindon won by 55 runs.
As Butler had established his reputation by 1744, he must have been active for some years previously and his career probably began in the 1730s. Very few players were mentioned by name in contemporary reports and there are no other references to Butler.
