  GrahamClayton: Sedgefield wrote the chess column in the "Australasian" newspaper between 1870 and 1880.
Oct-25-13  optimal play: <<SEDGEFIELD On the 27th ult., at Westbourne-street, Malvern-road, Sedgefield Wyatt Sedgefield, aged 46 years.>

- The Argus (Melbourne, Vic.) issue Thursday 1 March 1883>

<<By the death of Mr S W Sedgefield, which was announced in the Argus of yesterday, the Victorian chess community loses a very prominent member.

The deceased gentleman ranked amongst the finest players in the southern hemisphere, and needed only a little practice with the European masters to bring him up to the first place.

In the early days of Victorian chess, Mr Sedgefield was quite an enthusiast, being one of the strongest and most popular Australian players.

He was one of the Victorian representatives in every intercolonial match contested against New South Wales and South Australia.

About the middle of 1880, gradually failing health compelled him to withdraw from the practice of the game.

He was not afterwards seen in chess circles.

Mr Sedgefield conducted the chess article of The Australasian during the decade 1870-80.

In business the deceased gentleman was originally a solicitor, but gave up his private practice to accept the office of examiner of titles.

Some time ago leave of absence became necessary for purposes of restoration, which, however, was not to be.>
