Charles Edward Dunlop (25 June 1870 - 21 August 1911) played first-class cricket for Somerset from 1892 to 1905.[1] He was born at Edinburgh, Scotland and died at Kensington, London.

Dunlop was a middle to lower order right-handed batsman. He played for Somerset in around half a dozen matches in sevenral seasons from 1892 onwards without ever being a regular player or a particularly prolific contributor to the county's run-getting. A history of Somerset cricket written 80 years after Dunlop's last appearance for the side said he was "played mainly for his enthusiastic fielding".[2]

Dunlop was educated at Merchiston Castle School and at Oxford University, though he did not make any appearances for the Oxford cricket team.[3]

His first first-class appearances for Somerset came in 1892: he played seven times that season, but made only 75 runs in these games.[4] There was more success in fewer games in 1893, and he passed 50 in three innings, with a highest of 64 in the match against Gloucestershire at Taunton, when the bowling included two versions of W. G. Grace, both senior and junior.[5]

The younger Grace was one of only two first-class bowling victims for Dunlop – the other was the Anglo-Australian Test player J. J. Ferris, both of them in the match against Gloucestershire at Bristol in 1894.[6] This was the only firat-class game in which Dunlop bowled more than a few balls, and his bowling style is not known, but in a minor match for Scotland against Lancashire in 1895, he opened the bowling with some success.[7]

As a batsman, there were no 50s for Dunlop in first-class matches in 1894, but he returned to better form in 1895 and his aggregate of 282 runs for the season was his highest.[4] Included in this was his highest first-class score, an innings of 65 when used as an opener for Somerset in a successful second innings run chase against Kent at Taunton.[8]

After 1895, Dunlop's appearances for Somerset became more spasmodic and less successful. There were a few matches in 1897, then again in 1900, 1901 and 1902 and a final game in 1905, but in none of these seasons did he pass 50 again.[4]
