1830: ? La Bourdonnais vs Pelling, 1830 ?

1839: Upper Thames-street, iron merchant (Birmingham Journal, 8 June 1839, p. 8)

1842: Upper Thames-st. iron merchant (Perry's Bankrupt Gazette, 16 April 1842)

1851: iron merchant, 38, born in Chepstow, unmarried, visitor in Hamlet Of Penge, Surrey (census)

1855: independent gentleman, residing at Sydenham-hill (Morning Advertizer)

1856: 10 New Broad st. mews, & Upper Sydenham hill, Kent (dir.)

1856: iron mer. 10 New Broad st. mews (directory)

1861: Mr., an amateur remarkable for the brilliancy and rapidity of his combinations, introduced to England <about 25 years ago> the move 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Nxd4 <Qh4> (Illustrated London News)

1862: Esq., member of the standing committee for the Grand International Chess Congress and Tournament of 1862 (Illustrated London News)

1866: aged 53, died Apr-May-June 1866 in Lewisham, London (England and Wales Death Registration Index) (London Deaths: buried 4 May, Norwood Cemetery, Lambeth)

1866: The most rapid, and at the same time the most brilliant, English player of the last thirty years was Mr. Wellington Pulling, whose death, recently, will be regretted by all who knew him (Staunton in The Illustrated London News, 26 May 1866 (not seen by Tab))

1867: esq., Park road (of Sydenham Kent) (directory, probably not updated)

I'm only 99% sure these are all the same person.

<Mar-02-17 jnpope: La Bourdonnais vs Pelling, 1830, Levy cites Walker, which gives P*ll**g: And all the P*ll**g games given by Walker appear to Pulling. Levy just made a typo and Pelling should be ignored.>

  Chessical: Apparently of some social and financial standing within English Chess:

"British Chess Association. The list of the managing, standing, and cooperative committees for the <Grand International Chess Congress and Tournament of 1862> has just appeared, and presents an array of names which, while pleasingly testifying the extraordinary interest excited by the project, amply guarantees its efficient fulfilment. Want of space forbids our publication this week of all the names; but the following, which are those of the standing committee, and will show that no apprehension need be entertained of the present year’s meeting falling short of its famous predecessor of 1851 The Right Hon. Earl Granville, his Grace the Duke of Manchester, Lord Lyttelton...<Wellington Pulling>, Esq...George Walker, Esq.; the Rev. W. Wayte T. H. Worrall, Esq.; Marmaduke Wyvill, Esq., M.P...."
