Notes
--> W Gunnell made his debut in first-class matches
--> J Tanner made his debut in first-class matches
--> W Gunnell made his last appearance in first-class matches
--> T Ingram made his last appearance in first-class matches
--> J Small (1) passed 2000 runs in first-class matches when he reached 1
--> W Beldham (1) passed 4000 runs in first-class matches when he reached 40
--> W Fennex (2) passed 1500 runs in first-class matches when he reached 29
--> W Wells made his debut for England in first-class matches

The sources are unanimous that this game began the same day as the previous match ended, meaning that Aylward, Goldham, Graham and Ray must have hurried across London from Lord's. Gunnell is assumed to be the senior of the two Mitcham players of this name, i.e. W Gunnell, rather than J Gunnell who was to make a single appearance in an important match in 1810.
SB has W Bullen playing instead of Taylor, but no contemporary source has been found for this. Buckley in Fresh Light on Pre-Victorian Cricket notes 'Bullen vice Taylor' but the Morning Herald, which he cites, does not appear to contain any such statement. It is possible that Buckley was attempting to account for the presence of Bullen in the SB version when the list in MH of those due to play gives Taylor instead. Britcher, SM and Bentley all give Taylor and this is accepted.
