Biographical data
Name: Shepherd, Edward  
Born: 1808
Died: 22 Jan. 1881
 
Notes:
Gaige gives birth between 23-01-1808 and 22-01-1809. There was also an A. Shepherd, also from Wakefield (both were at the Yorkshire Chess Association meeting in Huddersfield in Nov. 1843 - see the Illustrated London News, 18 Nov. 1843, p.331). Name given as 'Edward Sheppard' in the Aug. 1855 Chess Player's Chronicle (p.256), probably in error.
