The Rev Richard Seddon played for Notts in the 1845 Canterbury game v Kent, though, like Samuel Dakin, without any residential or other county qualification.
It seems that both Dakin and Seddon appeared for the County because they had represented the North v MCC immediately prior to the Kent game and William Clarke simply retained the same side, which might more properly have been ‘North’, rather than ‘Notts’.
Born in Leicester in 1825, Seddon was educated at Bridgnorth Grammar School and Cambridge, playing in the University side in 1846 and 1847. He died in Bournemouth in 1884.
