Biographical data
Name: Morley, Frank  
Born: 9 Sep. 1860
Died: 17 Oct. 1937
 
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.
