Biographical data
Name: Morley, F.  
Born: 1860
Died:
 
Notes:
The Ipswich Journal of 8 Nov. 1873 says that he was 'not more than 14 or 15 years of age', and the Chelmsford Chronicle of 14 Nov. 1873 (p.3) says that he was 'aged 13'. This puts his hear of birth somewhere between 1858 and 1860, probably the latter. I am guessing that this was the F. Morley who played at Cambridge in the 1880s.
