Lord Byron, Hockey, 1800

Here is an article from London, England talking about the life of Lord Byron who recently had passed away. In his youth, he enjoyed to play hockey – which would probably put that around 1800. Lord Byron as did Charles Darwin attended Cambridge University, both of these men are mentioned to have played hockey in the early 1800s.  Now he may have played field hockey, but the game was called “hockey” and it eventually went on to the ice in England.
