Name  Thomas Jure

Role  Cricket Player

Thomas Jure (dates of birth and death unknown) was a noted English cricketer of the mid-18th century who played for the famous London Cricket Club and also for All-England.

Known to have been a good batsman, Jure is first recorded on 9 July 1747 playing for Robert Colchin's XI versus William Hodsoll's XI at the Artillery Ground. The match involved numerous leading players of the day.

Jure was a noted single wicket competitor and, later in the 1747 season he played in a high-stakes "threes" tournament that also included Robert Colchin, John Harris, Val Romney, Stephen Dingate and Richard Newland.

Jure is last noted in an important match in June 1749. His career therefore seems to have been short, but there is no doubt he was deemed good enough to play at the highest level and must have been a leading player, if only for a few seasons.
