Henry Holland (1791 at Hartley Row, Hartley Wintney, Hampshire – 2 February 1853 at Hartley Row) was an English cricketer who played first-class cricket from 1807 to 1825 for Hampshire, making 6 known appearances.[1]


Holland played his first match for Hampshire on 25 May 1807 against All-England at Lord's Old Ground. Batting at nine, he scored four and one not out as All-England won by 47 runs.[2] Holland did not play another game for Hampshire for ten years until the MCC faced Hampshire at Lord's Cricket Ground on 6 August 1817. During this match Holland batted at three, scoring his career best 27, following by two in the second innings, and taking two catches.[3]

Holland's final four matches came at more regular intervals. He met the MCC while playing for Godalming Cricket Club, first on 27 June 1822, scoring five and eight down the order,[4] and a second time on 1 July that same year, scoring six not out and five.[5] He played for Hampshire against All-England on 14 August 1823, scoring 11 and 10,[6] and against Godalming on 27 June 1825, scoring 11 in a three-day match in which he opened the batting.[7]
