Arthur Waldron

Arthur Waldron was a prominent figure in the legal world of Cardiff during the late Victorian and early Edwardian era who played in one Minor County Friendly for Glamorgan in 1891.

From the mid-1850s, his father Clement had acted as the Probate Registrar and Attorney for the town, working from his solicitors practice based in Church Street and living on Llandaff Green in the White House. It was here that Arthur was born in 1861 and, after attending Monkton House School, he studied Law at Magdalene College, Oxford. Arthur subsequently specialized in property law and, through friendships with Fred Insole of Ely Court and Edward Stock-Hill of Rookwood House, he built up an impressive list of clients.

Arthur also became a leading figure in the affairs of Fairwater CC and, through his friendship with Jack Brain, he was invited to keep wicket for Glamorgan in their trial match against a Colts XX at the Arms Park in May 1891. This proved to be his only appearance at county level, but Arthur continued to play with distinction for Fairwater CC and Cardiff CC besides playing for the Water Rats – a team including many of the rugby-playing young sportsmen of the late Victorian era.
