  zanzibar: Here is some info on this match from <EDOchess.com>:

<
Event data
Place: London
Start date: 28 July 1846
End date: 11 Aug. 1846

Notes:

Sunnucks gives the result as +7-4 for Kieseritzky, as does Stanley in the American Chess Magazine and Walker in Bell's Life in London; all other sources give +7-4=1. The Chess Player's Chronicle (v.7, 1846) gives +7-4=0 on p.281, but corrects this to +7-4=1 on p.304, giving the drawn game on pp.301-303. Similarly, the Illustrated London News gives +7-4=0 in the 15 Aug. 1846 issue but gives the drawn game in the 19 Sept. 1846 issue. Di Felice gives precise start and end dates.>

  zanzibar: The <Missing Information> statement in the bio should be removed, since half of the games could have been played in July - if the rate of play was 2/day.

A caution about what would otherwise be a sensible, almost common sense, assumption.
