Profile

Full name Joseph William Henry Makepeace
name notes There's always been a problem with his Christian names. For years, he was listed as no more than H. Makepeace. The Wisden Book of Obituaries and the original Farror-Lamming book simply call him Harry. The Wisden Book of Test Cricket gives him the WHR initials. But both Christopher Jenkin's Who's Who of Test Cricketers and Bill Frindall's England Test Cricketers both call him Joseph William Henry. Jim Creasy's research calls him John William Harry. - England Football Factbook p.188
Born 22 August 1881 in Middlesbrough, North Riding of Yorkshire [registered as Joseph William H. in Middlesbrough, North Riding, September 1881].
