Last updated

Thomas Daniel Tremlett (14 February 1834 – 22 January 1894) was an English cricketer who played first-class cricket in four matches for Cambridge University in 1853 and 1854. [1] He was born at Rodney Stoke in Somerset and died at Harrow, Middlesex.

First-class cricket is an official classification of the highest-standard international or domestic matches in the sport of cricket. A first-class match is of three or more days' scheduled duration between two sides of eleven players each and is officially adjudged to be worthy of the status by virtue of the standard of the competing teams. Matches must allow for the teams to play two innings each although, in practice, a team might play only one innings or none at all.

Depending on the circumstances of each individual match, the club has always been recognised as holding first-class status. The university played List A cricket in 1972 and 1974 only. It has not played top-level Twenty20 cricket.

Tremlett was educated at Eton College and at King's College, Cambridge. [2] He played cricket at Eton and featured in the annual Eton v Harrow match in three seasons from 1850 to 1852. [1] In these games, and then later at Cambridge, he batted anywhere in the batting order from opening the innings to being the No 11, and he also took wickets; however, there is no record of whether he batted right- or left-handed or of his bowling style. His best score in his four first-class games came in his first match: an innings of 28 against the Marylebone Cricket Club. [3] In 1854, his three matches included the University Match against Oxford University, and he is therefore recorded as having achieved a Blue. [4] The game was his final first-class appearance.

Tremlett graduated from Cambridge University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1857, and this was automatically converted to a Master of Arts in 1860. [2] He became a Fellow of King's College until he disqualified himself by marrying in 1873; he also became a lawyer at Lincoln's Inn and was called to the bar in 1861. [2]

A Bachelor of Arts is a bachelor's degree awarded for an undergraduate course or program in either the liberal arts, sciences, or both. Bachelor of Arts programs generally take three to four years depending on the country, institution, and specific specializations, majors, or minors. The word baccalaureus should not be confused with baccalaureatus, which refers to the one- to two-year postgraduate Bachelor of Arts with Honors degree in some countries.

A Master of Arts is a person who was admitted to a type of master's degree awarded by universities in many countries, and the degree is also named Master of Arts in colloquial speech. The degree is usually contrasted with the Master of Science. Those admitted to the degree typically study linguistics, history, communication studies, diplomacy, public administration, political science, or other subjects within the scope of the humanities and social sciences; however, different universities have different conventions and may also offer the degree for fields typically considered within the natural sciences and mathematics. The degree can be conferred in respect of completing courses and passing examinations, research, or a combination of the two.
