George Henry Monson

The Honourable Sir George Henry Monson (17 October 1755 17 June 1823) was a noted English amateur cricketer whose known first-class career included 13 matches from the 1785 to the 1792 season. Monson, who was a useful batsman, belonged to the famous Hornchurch Club that was at the time representative of Essex and he was also an early member of Marylebone Cricket Club.

GH Monson was the son of John Monson, 2nd Baron Monson[1] and elder brother of Captain (later Major-General) Charles Monson (born 11 March 1758; died 11 January 1800[2]) who made a single known appearance for the White Conduit Club in the 1785 season. Captain Monson did very well with his bowling in that match, taking five wickets (all bowled) in the first innings, but apparently he never appeared again.
