Note that many scorecards in the 18th century are unknown or have missing details and so it is impossible to provide a complete analysis of batting performances: e.g., the missing not outs prevent computation of batting averages. The "runs scored" are in fact the "runs known".
Others who scored more than 300 runs were Tom Walker with 661;
William Beldham538; Henry Tufton and his brother John Tuftonwho both scored 416; Jack Small415; Harry Walker 366; Joey Ring364; and Thomas Ray 337
Note that the wickets credited to an 18th century bowler were only those where he bowled the batsman out. The bowler was not credited with the wickets of batsmen who were caught out, even if it was "caught and bowled". In addition, the runs conceded by each bowler were not recorded so no analyses or averages can be computed.
Thomas Boxallwith 60 wickets was the leading bowler in 1795
Other good performances were by David Harris 51;
Thomas Lord40; John Wells 38; Tom Walker 33; Charles Cumberland27; Richard Purchase22; Lord Frederick Beauclerk21; William Beldham20; John Hammond 20; Sylvester 14; Robert Turner 13
Note that many scorecards in the 18th century are unknown or have missing details and so the totals are of the "known" catches and stumpings only. Stumpings were not always recorded as such and sometimes the name of the wicket-keeper was not given. Generally, a catch was given the same status as "bowled" with credit being awarded to the fielder only and not the bowler. There is never a record of "caught and bowled": the bowler would be credited with the catch, not with the wicket.
To supplement his outstanding season with the bat, John Hammond took 37 catches and 12 stumpings
The Tufton brothers, Henry and John, between them took 33 catches and 1 stumping but in most cases it is not known which of them took the catch. Henry definitely caught 8 and John definitely caught 6, while it was almost certainly Henry who performed the stumping, but the other 19 catches are simply "c Tufton"!
