Edward Turnour, 4th Earl Winterton (1810–1879) was a first-class cricketer who played 25 times for Sussex County Cricket Club, without much success.[1] The 4th Earl also had one of the finest beagle packs of the time, rivaled only by those of Prince Albert and the Rev. Phillip Honeywood, from whose pack the entire line of modern beagles is descended.

He was commissioned as Captain of the 6th (Petworth) Sussex Rifle Volunteer Corps on 26 April 1860.[2]
