Biographical data
Name: Gibbons, Thomas Charles  
Born: 1865
Died: 1901
 
Notes:
Di Felice has T.E. Gibbons; Winter has T.C. Gibbons. British Chess Magazine has T.E. Gibbons several times in 1890 (Jan. 1890, p.3) and T.C. Gibbons in 1891 (June 1891, p.266). Are they the same? Also, there is an 'F. Gibbons' who played for Surrey in 1884. Is that a mistake for 'T. Gibbons'?
