Pentoss was reportedly a form of ladies' cricket.
A picture in the W. W. Grantham collection at Lewes, England, shows a game seeming to resemble stoolball, but with wickets that look like round targets, held up by a post on either side of the 'target.' The bats are like smaller stoolball bats.
A photographic image of a game in progress can be found with Google search of <"joshua biltcliffe" "ladies cricket">.
There is no firm indication, at this point, of the time period of the geographic area of play. The photograph was taken in Penistone, in southern Yorkshire. Penistone is about 80 miles north of Birmingham.
