Sep-30-19  Nosnibor: Victor Hextall Lovell was born in Leicester 1889 and died on the 23rd April 1940.His father Alderman Lovell founded a confectionary firm in Leicester of which Lovell junior became a partner.He became Secretary of the Leicestershire Chess Club in 1920 and retained the position until his death. During his chess career he defeated T.H.Tyler, A J Mackenzie,J W Broadbent,G Abrahams,H E Price,Rupert Cross and many of these more than once.He restricted his play to league and county matches and it was felt that he would have made a good account of himself in national tournaments.He won the Leicestershire Championship on a record 15 occasions.

  Tabanus: <(born Jun-31-1889> is solely based on the 1939 England and Wales Register, Leicester, where he is a "Wholesale Confectioner Sugar" living in Dovedale Road. The probate calendar of 1940 also has 42 Dovedale Road, Leicester. Birth index has however b. "Jan-Feb-Mar" 1889.

  MissScarlett: It just occurred that June 31st isnít a kosher date.

  Tabanus: I had to look again. It indeed says "31 June 89".

In the 1891 Census for England, which was meant to be taken on the night of 5 April 1891, Victor was 2 years old. Perhaps 31 January...

  MissScarlett: Seems the most logical inference. Let's go with that, subject to the usual provisos.

  MissScarlett: <Nosnibor>, you posted a simul loss of Lovell's to Atkins here (Joseph Henry Blackburne (kibitz #236)), but there's a mistake in the notation with 21...Rf1. Could you correct this?
Mar-27-20  Nosnibor: <MissScarlett> 21...Rf7 is the correct move. I mentioned before that Atkins also played Lovell in an odds game conceding a Rook which appears to be the only game on record of Atkins giving an odds start.

  MissScarlett: Ok, submitted. As <Site>, I went with <Leicester ENG> in preference to <Leicestershire Chess Club>; is that right?
Mar-27-20  Nosnibor: <MissScarlett> That is correct.Thankyou.
