Who is George Carter?

George Carter was an English cricketer who played in major matches during the 1740s, chiefly associated with London Cricket Club. He is first recorded playing for London in a single wicket match at the Artillery Ground on Monday, 22 August 1748. Carter took part in two more single wicket contests in 1749, both played for high stakes, and was then a member of Long Robin's XI against Tom Faulkner's XI at the Artillery Ground on Monday, 28 August 1749.

As Carter had established his reputation by 1748, he must have been active for some years previously and his career may have began in the 1730s. Very few players were mentioned by name in contemporary reports and there are no further references to Carter after 1749.
