In the few weeks since 'Pears 150' by Andrew Thomas was published, it has been good to reinforce, or re-establish, contact with several families important in Worcestershire CCC’s early days as highlighted in pages 30-34 in the book.

For example, we have modern links with the Coventrys, Lytteltons, Foleys, Somers-Cocks, Norburys, Berkeleys, several schools and organisations.

However, we would still like to trace descendants from many other families.

It’s a long-shot, at least five generations on, and a lengthy list, but the old club’s sesqui-centenary would seem as good a time as any to make the effort.

Do you know descendants of the following cricketers closely associated with WCCC long before first class status?

SC Allsopp

RJ Baker

EG / GE Bromley Martin

Rev MB Buckle

W Caldicott

Rev WB Cherry

LM Curtler

WD Deighton

WE Dowdeswell

GS Fetherstonhaugh

G Flowers

AH Hudson (Pershore)

EP / HC Jobson

A Martin

Arthur Millward

C Millward

Rec RC Moncreiff

Rev J Potts

Rev CJ Sale

John Smith

J Vaughan

Rev A Waller.

We are particularly keen to trace relatives of JS Isaac, and his sons, JEV Isaac (1880-1915), and AW Isaac (1873- 1916), once of Boughton Park, Worcester.
