"At the Clerkenwell County Court on Monday, before his Honour Judge Edge, Henry Thomas Moore, professional cricketer and groundsman, of Cricket Field Lodge, Hampstead Lane, Highgate, sued Messrs. Frank Gibbs, of Meadow View, Stratford-on-Avon; Arthur W. Jackson, of Avonside, Stratford-on-Avon; and Edward Deer, also of Stratford-on-Avon, for £24, as damages for alleged beach of contract...The Judge said he
was glad that he could decide that case without going into the question of competency or incompetency of plaintiff as a cricketer. But had that question been gone into, and looking at plaintiff's testimonials, his age, and the fact that a first-class groundsman or professional cricketer could not have been expected for 30s. per week, he would have found some difficulty in coming to a conclusion in favour of defendants. But the evidence was overwhelming, and contributed to by his letter to his father, that plaintiff resigned. So the verdict must be in the defendant's favour." - Leamington Spa Courier, Friday, 14 December 1906.
  According to the 1939 register, Henry is retired and is still married to Mary. They live at 45 Corpess Cottage West Road in Wembley.
