<Netherlands Tourney, played at the Hague in August last. The first prize was carried off by Mr. H. W. B. Gifford, an Englishman.>
|Sep-11-14|| ||Stonehenge: Henry Gifford's balloon, Paris 1878 (sic, should be Henri Giffard), funny that Gifford should play in Paris 1878.|
Gifford Variation, named after him?
|Sep-12-14|| ||Tabanus: London Standard 26 Oct. 1900 p. 1:
<DEATHS. ... GIFFORD. - On the 25th instant, at 11. Sydenham-avenue, Sydenham, Eliza (Lillie), wife of H. W. Birkmyre Gifford.>
So he must have married again ca. 1902 (as 9 years married in 1911) to Lizzie Isabel, who was born in France but was a "British subject by parentage". The document by his death in 1924 mentions only George Campbell Goldsmid and Cyril George Goldsmid, the relatives of his first wife Eliza Goldsmid.
|Sep-12-14|| ||Stonehenge: Ancestry.com has
Name: Lizzie I Goldsmid
Spouse: Henry W Gifford
Marriage: 19 Apr 1902 - Manhattan
|Sep-12-14|| ||Stonehenge: Elisa Goldsmid (born Garey)
|Sep-12-14|| ||Stonehenge: N D Goldsmid and E Garey married on Sep/10/1850
|Sep-12-14|| ||Tabanus: <Stonehenge> Eliza (Lillie) Goldsmid (born Garey) and Lizzie Isabel Goldsmid must be two different persons.|
Or? What a mystery man :)
|Sep-12-14|| ||Tabanus: Hmm.
From the names, ages and times of marriage, it looks like the second wife was a daughter of the first wife.
|Sep-12-14|| ||Stonehenge: From http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nevill...:|
"His widow, Elisa Goldsmid (born Garey), then moved to Paris. The couple was childless."
So Elizabeth Garey and Neville Davison Goldsmid didn't have children.
|Sep-12-14|| ||Tabanus: Ok. They married in the "Church of England in the House of the British Charge d'Affaires at The Hague" 10 Sep. 1850:|
|Sep-12-14|| ||Tabanus: Ok I found the parents of the 2nd wife Lizzie Isabel Goldsmid: Edmund Elsden Goldsmid and Sarah Elizabeth Goldsmid. She was born 25 Nov. 1850 and baptized in Paris: http://interactive.ancestry.com/199...|

"The second French National Tourney began in Paris November 6, with seven entrants, each of whom had two games to play with every other player, at the rate of three games a week. .... <Gifford>, won 4, lost 2; ..."
Charleston News and Courier 31 May 1885 p. 7:
"Dr. Zukertort in Paris. Since his arrival at the French Capital on the 19th ult., Dr. Zukertort has not been idle. On the 24th he conducted five blindfold and simultaneous games at the Cercle des Echecs against Messrs. De Boistertre and Wise Bonaparte (scored by the blindfold player) Mr Vaillant (to whom he lost) and Messrs. <Gifford> and Oberndoffer who managed to draw."
|Sep-13-14|| ||Stonehenge: There are some more games of Gifford in "L'Échiquier d'Aix", but I don't know if it can be read online.|

if you have nothing sensible to say, then please stay away.

To show that his second wife died in Earls Court (same address) in 1923. I'll stop there..
|Oct-09-14|| ||mkuyt: For your information, I research the Goldsmids and happened upon your site here. This may be of interest:
Eliza Goldsmid nee Garey (1828 - 1900) was the wealthy widow of Neville Davison Goldsmid (1814 - 1875), entrepreneur. I estimate her fortune 150000 - 200000 pounds when she married Gifford, who was 19 years younger, in april 1877. Shortly after they left the Hague for Paris. After Eliza´s death Gifford remarried Lizzie, daughter of Sarah Elisabeth Goldsmid nee Garey, Eliza´s sister, and Edmund Elsden Goldsmid 1818 / 1870), brother of Neville D. Goldsmid, and equally wealthy.|
