Biographical data
Name: Bussy, Bernard Fooks  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
Di Felice and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi have 'Bussy'; the Westminster Papers, the Field and the Illustrated London News have both 'Bussey' and 'Bussy' at different times. Land and Water of 24 Jan. 1885 (p.86) has 'B.F. Bussey'. The Westminster Papers of 1 Jan. 1878 (p.158) has 'B.F. Bussy', which I take to be correct.
