Event table notes

Event data
Place: Manchester
Start date: Aug. 1857
End date: Aug. 1857
Wayte says he 'lost a majority of games' against Gordon on this occasion. I will use a soft result of +1-0=1 for Gordon, to reflect a score better than 50 and less than 100 percent, but with a small number of games so as not to give this uncertain result too much weight.
