Event table notes

Event data
Place: London, England
Start date: 1859
End date: 1859
Wayte says he 'won much oftener than he lost' in play against Thomas Inglis Hampton over some period after 1857. I will use a soft result of +1-0=1 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, and I will assign it to a date midway between 1857 and 1861, the date of the next specific event that Wayte discusses in his reminiscences.
