Fitzroy Cricket Club was formed by the amalgamation of the Prince of Wales and Collingwood Commercial Cricket Clubs. The first General meeting was attended by 14 persons and was adjourned for a week, when an increased attendance of 19 was secured.
Mr Graham Berry, who was so well known afterwards throughout Victoria as a leading politician, acted as Chairman. The Annual Meeting was held on 17 September 1863 at which 26 members attended and elected Mr C. Vaughan the first president.
The Club was also granted permissive occupancy of the original Brunswick St Oval in 1863, after separate grants of adjoining lands had been earlier given to the Prince of Wales and Collingwood Commercial Cricket Clubs, shortly before their amalgamation. The original area of 386 yards by 195 yards was however cut down, forcing the Club to obtain additional land next to the Merri Creek in Northcote, which became known as the William Barr Oval.
