The teams are not in batting order. This match was the first of three between a combined WCC/Moulsey team and Hornchurch. The source gives no venue, but Haygarth (who was aware only of the first two matches) suggested Hornchurch on the grounds that the second match was at Molesey. This was a reasonable suggestion on the basis of the information available to him, but the discovery of a third match (at Hornchurch) has called the matter into question. However, the newspaper announcement for the second match refers to the arrangement of a third game in a way that suggests that it was a later addition after the first two matches had been agreed, so Haygarth's suggestion retains some validity and has been accepted, although the whole matter remains uncertain. The White Conduit ground at Islington is another possibility or even Lord's, although the absence of any match reports in the London newspapers may argue against a metropolitan venue.
This match presents special difficulties in the matter of player identification. Three Hornchurch players, Butcher, Graham and Rimmington, share surnames with known Kent players - too many to be a coincidence. It is assumed that they are the same.
Butcher - Note his consistent record as a bowler in most matches in which he appears.
Graham - It is probably significant that his only Kent match is v Essex at Hornchurch (27 September 1792), and Ashley-Cooper identifies him as N Graham of either Crayford or Dartford (both just over the river from Essex).
Rimmington - He must be one of the three players with this uncommon surname appearing in Kent matches 1780-83. The late HS Scales in his register of 18th-century players (JCS, Vols III-IV) suggests M Rimmington: no reason is given but Scales is known to have had access to unpublished notes by Ashley-Cooper, now lost, so in the absence of other evidence M Rimmington has been accepted, even though B appears to have been the most prominent in the earlier period.
Davidson is assumed to be the same man as appeared for England v Hampshire in 1784; also as a given man for Hornchurch in a match v Berks in 1785 (DC p64).
SB gives this and the second match as Moulsey Hurst games but the composition of the team shows that it was WCC and Moulsey Hurst jointly, and this is confirmed by press announcements for the third match at Hornchurch on 2 August (for which the full score has unfortunately not survived).
