Fuller-Maitland was born at Stansted Hall, Essex, the eldest son of William Fuller- Maitland, of Stansted, and Garth, Brecon, and his wife Lydia, Prescott. His father was an art collector and had rebuilt Stansted Hall to house his collection, but died before he could enjoy it.[1] Fuller Maitland was educated at Brighton College and Harrow School where he was in the cricket XI for four years and at Christ Church, Oxford.[2] While at Oxford he played cricket for Oxford University where he was a devastating bowler. In 1864 he took 8 for 58 against MCC, 8 for 48 against Surrey and in the University match took four wickets in each innings for an Oxford victory. In 1865 he again took 4 wickets in each innings of the University match, and against Surrey took 6 for 100 and 6 for 35. He played the same matches in 1866 but his wicket tally was not so high. In 1867 he took 5 for 117 against Surrey. He subsequently played for Marylebone Cricket Club and for various other first class sides including "Gentlemen" v Players, North of the Thames and I Zingari. Other teams he played for included South Wales, Bishops Stortford,and Essex.
