Stanley Mease "Sam" Toyne FRHS (13 June 1881 – 22 February 1962) was an English cricketer and headmaster.

Education and headmaster[edit]

Educated at Haileybury and at Hertford College, Oxford, where he was a Classical Exhibitioner, Toyne was a Master at Haileybury between 1906 and 1913. He was headmaster of St Peter's School, York from 1913 to 1936, where he coached future England captain Norman Yardley, and on the staff of Bedford School between 1937 and 1945.[1][2] He was a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and published a number of books on history.


A right-handed batsman and an underarm slow bowler, although which arm he bowled with is unknown, Toyne represented Hampshire in a single first-class match in 1905, against Yorkshire. 23 years later, Toyne represented the Marylebone Cricket Club in a single first-class match against Ireland, which was also Toyne's last first-class match.


He died at Broxbourne, Hertfordshire on 22 February 1962. He had married in 1910.
