Who was Lothian Bonham-Carter?

Lothian George Bonham-Carter J.P. was an English cricketer. Bonham-Carter was a right-handed batsman who bowled slow roundarm bowler, but with which arm is unknown, but he was one of the last cricketers to use this bowling style. He was born in Adhurst St Mary, just north of Petersfield in Hampshire.

The son of John Bonham-Carter, a Member of Parliament for Winchester, and Laura Maria Nicholson, Bonham-Carter was educated at Clifton College, where he represented the college cricket team. In 1876, he enlisted in the Royal Engineers, holding the rank of Sub-Lieutenant. By 1878 he was serving in the Rifle Volunteer Corps and held the rank of 2nd Lieutenant, in that same year he was promoted to Lieutenant. By 1880, he had seemingly been demoted back to 2nd Lieutenant and resigned his commission on 9 June 1880. Later in his life, he worked as a Justice of the Peace.

He later made his debut in first-class cricket for Hampshire against the Marylebone Cricket Club in 1880. Four years would pass before Bonham-Carter would play first-class cricket for Hampshire again, with his next appearance coming in 1884 against Surrey.
