Actually, William Cook, as evidenced by a report of the simul in the <Bristol Daily Post> of February 25th 1875, p.3.

The game didn't end with 33...Ref6; the game score as given in the <ILN> of May 22nd 1875, p.499, continued to move 43 'and wins'. It correctly gives the venue as Clifton, but wrongly gives the date as March and the number of opponents as eight - which fits another blindfold display that Blackburne gave in London.
