We have recently had correspondence from a gentlemen named Jim Clelland, who has been doing some research on the history of Colton village, near Tadcaster.
He believes that Edward Maul Lawson-Smith of Colton Lodge was a former Member of Yorkshire Gentlemen's Cricket Club and that matches were played at Colton Lodge.
We have given him access to our archives to assist him in his research. He then Kindly forwarded a photo from an elderly resident of the village and posed the question?
I’m sure you won’t have any living members who can identify anyone in the photo but are there any clues that might confirm that this is Yorkshire Gentlemen’s Cricket Club ?
Can anyone help?
