--> House of Lords full substitute: Lord Ellesmere for M of Ormonde
--> Lord Ellesmere was allowed to bat twice (Lord Ellesmere allowed to bat twice as the Marquis of Ormonde was absent)

In the House of Lords first innings The Earl of Ellesmere batted twice taking the place of the Marquis of Ormonde who was absent
The number of absentees in this match seems to have highlighted the difficulty of getting these teams together and the fixture was afterwards dropped from the itinerary
