  MissScarlett: C.N. 9847:

<Later sources (starting with page 230 of the fifth edition of Modern Chess Openings, in 1932) attached the name “Worrall Attack” solely to 5 O-O Be7 6 Qe2, thereby cementing Tartakower’s error. It thus seems that T.H. Worrall had nothing to do with either of the variations, whereas the actual inventor, R.B. Wormald, played at least one game with 5 O-O Be7 6 Qe2 (against C. de Vere in the Glowworm Tourney, London, 1868).>
