The Rev Richard Seddon also played for Notts in the 1845 Canterbury game, like Dakin, without any qualification.

It seems that both Dakin and Seddon appeared for the County because they had represented the North v M.C.C. immediately prior to the Kent game and William Clarke simply retained the same side, which surely ought to have been ‘North’, rather than ‘Notts’.

Born in Leicester in 1825, Seddon was educated at Bridgnorth G.S. and Cambridge, playing in the University side in 1846 and 1847. He died in Bournemouth in 1884.
