1836 was the 50th season of cricket in England since the foundation of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). The first real move took place towards the establishment of a county club. Although Sussex had been a major centre of cricket since the 17th century, there had apparently been no move towards a permanent county organisation until 17 June 1836 when a meeting in Brighton set up a Sussex Cricket Fund to support county matches. It was from this organisation that Sussex County Cricket Club was formally constituted in 1839.
