<Dr George Beach> was born at Oldbury, near Birmingham. He trained at Carmarthen before teaching at schools in Wednesbury, Birmingham, Cheadle and Stoke, He was the headmaster of Christ Church School, Macclesfield for a period of over 34 years. He was an extremely talented polymath. Though only the master of a provincial elementary school he obtained the successive titles of B.A., M.A., LL.D, and was called to the bar becoming a fully qualified barrister. His academic interests included mathematics and English on which subjects he wrote several text books. He was proficient in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Welsh and had a good knowledge of Latin and Greek.

Dr Beach was a very strong amateur player who enjoyed a friendship with one of the top English tournament players of the day, Joseph Henry Blackburne. Blackburne described his friend as 'certainly the finest amateur player outside London.'
