(Redirected from J.H. Bastard)

John Horatio (Horace) Bastard (16 December 1817 – July 1848) was a Cambridge University cricketer who played in six first-class matches between 1838 and 1840. He was born and died in Newcastle upon Tyne.

He was educated at Winchester College and Trinity College, Cambridge.[1] As well as playing for Cambridge, he also played two first-class games for the Marylebone Cricket Club against Oxford University and against his alma mater. Bastard never scored highly, making 0, 11, 0, 5, 9, 11, 0, 0* and 5 in his first-class innings. Although the bowling records of the matches in which he played are not complete, he is not recorded to have bowled at first-class level, and certainly did not take a wicket. He did, however, hold three catches.

In later life, Bastard became a clergyman, serving as a Navy Chaplain.[1]
