William North

William North's reputation, indeed his memorial, is the book of Nottingham scores he complied in 1829, thus preserving records of many early Nottingham matches.

Born in Nottingham in 1807 he was a schoolmaster and then an Inspector of Corn Returns. He played in just three major Nottingham matches, the last in 1828 and died in Nottingham in 1855.
