Henry Anthony (born 16 May 1873) was an English cricketer. He was a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-pace bowler who played for Nottinghamshire. He was born in Old Basford.

Anthony made four first-class appearances between 1898 and 1902, in the Nottinghamshire lower-order, partnering players such as Charles Wright and John Gunn, both of whom would shortly become Test cricketers on account of their appearances with the team.

Anthony's brother, George and uncle Alfred also played first-class cricket, the brothers partnering each other in the lower order in Henry's final first-class game.

Famous quotes containing the words henry and/or anthony:

    Individualism, pushed to anarchy, in the family is as ill- founded theoretically and as mischievous practically as it is in the State; while extreme regimentation is a certain means of either destroying self-reliance or of maddening to rebellion.
    —Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    I’ll wager that it was impossible after we got mixed together to tell an anti from a suffragist by her clothes. There might have been a difference, though, in the expression of the faces and the shape of the heads.
    —Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
