   Jun-23-17 Mieses vs Teichmann (1895)
 
Tabanus: I made an edit. And wonder about this sentence: <The fourth game was also played at the British Chess Club on the both February> Does BCM say <20th> February? That's the newspaper date.
 
   Jun-23-17 Biographer Bistro (replies)
 
Tabanus: Looking for pictures of persons I'm working with (for CG) is what I can do. Is a bad picture better than no picture? Is an unsourced picture better than no picture? I found these on Eliza Mary Thorold : http://soloscacchi.altervista.org/w... John Edmund Hall : ...
 
   Jun-23-17 Lasker vs F O Ballard, 1901
 
Tabanus: Yes Miss, I see that now :) There was even a third, residing in Dallas and/or Houston Texas, Otto O. Ballard, who was once chess champion of Indiana. Perhaps a relative.
 
   Jun-22-17 James Pollard Lea
 
Tabanus: Lea was a common name that time, and is also not a good search word. I post some tempting options here, but think more evidence is necessary: 1860: James Pollard Lea baptized 5 Aug 1860 in Saint Swithin, Worchester (= SW of Birmingham). Parents: James Lea and Elizabeth. (England ...
 
   Jun-22-17 E M Thorold vs John Edmund Hall, 1890
 
Tabanus: The game here is from Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News, 20 Sep 1890, p. 47. They have this intro: <A game played between Miss Thorold (Lady Champion of England) and Mr. Hall.> Date (Sep 4) and rd. number (10) is inferred from Leeds Mercury 5 Sep and other newspapers.
 
   Jun-22-17 John Edmund Hall (replies)
 
Tabanus: There was a bio on him at the Yorkshire Chess History website. Sadly that site seems gone forever. Is some of it retrievable from the Wayback Machine?
 
   Jun-22-17 Eliza Mary Thorold
 
Tabanus: Some evidence: 1835: Eliza Mary Thorold, baptized 25 July 1835 in Blyth, Nottingham. Father: Michael Wynne Thorold, Mother: Eliza (England Select Births and Christenings) 1851 census Ecclesall Bierlow Yorkshire: Michael W. Thorold, 48, Landed Proprietor, Eliza Thorold, 60, Michael ...
 
   Jun-22-17 William Gwilym Harris
 
Tabanus: (cont.) <— The Chairman next proceeded to present the prices to the successful competitors in this year's tournament, the winner of the first prize, a handsome chess table, being Mr. Harris, while the second prize, Staunton’s Chess Annual, was gained by Mr. Rhoades. The Chairman

Tabanus: Thanks CG! I uploaded 4 games of Miss Thorold since she was once considered Lady Champion of England. Here's the compensation: Eliza Mary Thorold vs James Pollard Lea, 1885
 
   Jun-20-17 Harry Davidson (replies)
 
Tabanus: Julius died in 1879. He is a Physician in 1860 and a Chiropodist in 1870. In 1870, of his many children (incl. Harry, 12) is the son David A., 23, student of medicine. 1880 census; Rachael Davidson, 60, "Mother", with 6 sons and 4 daughters, incl. Dr. D. Davidson, 33, Doctor, and ...
