Mr. William Judd,, Captain of the Greytown Cricket Club, was born in Greytown in 1864. His father, Mr. John Judd, a very old settler, is referred to elsewhere. Educated at the public school, he went to work on his father's farm. In 1889 he took a farm at Mauriceville, where he has since resided. His cricketing career began in his school days. Joining the Greytown Cricket Club in 1882, Mr. Judd was chosen in the first eleven. A left-handed batsman, his first conspicuous appearance was for the local Greytown Club against Wellington Club, when he scored ninety-four, and as a bowler took eleven wickets for twenty-two runs. For this fine performance the Greytown citizens presented him with a silver-mounted bat. He went to Auckland with the Wellington representatives in 1885-6, gaining the second best batting average and the best bowling record. He has since played for the Midland Club, Wellington, and the Wairarapa representative eleven. Mr. Judd has also appeared in the Greytown Football Club's first fifteen.
