Howard Staunton (1810 22 June 1874)
Compiled by vaskolon
--*--

On 23 July 1849 Staunton married Frances Carpenter Nethersole, who had had eight children by a previous marriage..In 1849 Nathaniel Cooke registered a chess set design, and Jaques of London obtained the manufacturing rights. Staunton advertised the new set in his Illustrated London News chess column, pointing out that the pieces were easily identifiable, very stable, and good-looking. Each box was signed by Staunton, and Staunton received a royalty on each set sold..The design became popular, and has been the standard, for both professional and amateur chess players ever since...Anthony Saidy and Norman Lessing wrote that, "if a vote was taken among chess-players as to which pieces they most enjoyed playing with, .. the Staunton chessmen would win by an overwhelming margin"
