'The Lobster' - Digby Loder Jephson by Spy.
Born in Surrey 1871. Educated Peterhouse. Became Captain of Surrey. 'Likes music and golf'.

JEPHSON, MR. DIGBY LODER ARMROID, born at Clapham, in Surrey, on February 23, 1871, died at Cambridge on January 19, in his fifty-fifth year. For many seasons a familiar and popular figure in the game, Jephson was a most useful all-round cricketer, fit, when at the height of his powers, for inclusion in any team except those of an international character. He learned the game whilst at Manor House School, Clapham, and, with more opportunities, developed his skill at Cambridge. As a batsman he possessed many strokes and could hit very hard indeed, while in the field he always worked hard. He will, however, always be best remembered for his lob bowling, a style he cultivated after employing fast over-arm for some years. In 1890 he obtained his Blue for Cambridge, but in his three matches against Oxford he scored only 31 runs in three completed innings.

It was for Surrey that most of his best feats in first-class cricket were performed. He assisted that County from 1891 until 1904, and in two seasons, 1901 and 1902, captained the side. His highest of the nine three-figure innings he played for Surrey was 213 against Derbyshire at the Oval in 1900, when he and R. Abel (193), going in against a total of 325, made 364 together for the first wicket. In the match with Sussex at Hove a year later the same pair twice made over a hundred together for the opening partnership--114 in the first innings and 109 in the second, Jephson's scores being 95 and 85. In 1900 he had an excellent all-round record, for, besides making 1,952 runs with an average of 41.53, he took sixty-six wickets for 23.40 runs each. In the Gentlemen v. Players match at Lord's in 1899 his lobs gained him an analysis of six for 21--a splendid performance against a strong batting side. For Surrey he took five wickets for 12 runs against Derbyshire at Chesterfield in 1899, and performed the hat-trick v. Middlesex at the Oval in 1904.

In club cricket he did many remarkable things, especially for the Wanderers. For Crystal Palace v. Seaton in 1894 he and Stanley Colman made 300 together for the first wicket, and for Wanderers v. Tonbridge in 1900 the same pair put up 349 together, his own contribution on the latter occasion being 226. Other large innings played by him were 261 for Crystal Palace v. Eastbourne in 1893 and 301 not out--made in three hours and a quarter--for Wanderers against Norwood two years later. With his fast bowling he took five wickets in eight balls for Crystal Palace v. Eastbourne in 1888, and twice his lobs accounted for all ten wickets in an innings--for Wanderers v. Chiswick Park in 1894 and for G. E. Bicknell's Eleven v. Streatham in 1902. For some time he was on the London Stock Exchange, but later he took to journalism and coaching on the Cambrdige University Cricket Ground. He was the author of a book of verse entitled A Few Overs.

Leslie Ward 'Spy' 1851-1922

Cartoonist, born November 21, 1851, in Harewood Square, London. As the son of artists Edward Matthew Ward and Henrietta Mary Ada Ward, Ward's artistic talent was fostered from an early age. After being educated at Eton, Ward who originally trained as an architect subsequently trained under Sidney Smirke and W.P. Frith. He joined the Royal Academy Schools in 1871, during which time Sir John Everett Millais, struck by Ward's caricatures, introduced him to Thomas Gibson Bowles, the editor of Vanity Fair. Bowles recruited Ward in 1873 to replace Carlo Pellegrini (Ape).

Ward contributed regularly to Vanity Fair over the next forty years under the pseudonym 'Spy'. He produced over 2,387 caricatures of well-known people including those in government, finance and education many of which were lithographed by Vincent Brooks. Ward authored a book of recollections in 1915, Forty Years of 'Spy'. He was knighted in 1918 and died on May 15, 1922 in London.
