Plaque at Clifton College, fixed in 1962.

Arthur Edward Jeune "James" Collins (18 August 1885 – 11 November 1914) was an English cricketer and soldier, most famous for his achievement as a schoolboy of what was, for 116 years, the highest-ever recorded score in cricket—628 not out, scored over four afternoons in June 1899. Collins's record-making innings drew a large crowd and increasing media interest: spectators at the Old Cliftonian match being played nearby were drawn away to watch a junior school house cricket match. Collins's record score was never matched until 2016, when Pranav Dhanawade scored 1009 not out.
