my ancestor

Cricket History - Hambledon. Just been thinking about my origins in Hampshire, and the fact that I am allegedly descended from Edward "Curry" Aburrow, one of the Hambledon team in the Golden Age of cricket (late 18th century), and stumbled across this web page with information about it. It says that the location of Edward Aburrow's grave is known, but I couldn't find it when I visited Hambledon, and on my first visit the churchwarden (now sadly passed on) said he "remembered to have seen it twenty year ago" but could no longer call to mind where it was. On my second visit, a lovely local lady invited us in, made us a cup of tea, and dug out a book on cricket in an attempt to assist.
