Biographical data
Name: Plunkett, Horace Curzon  
Born: 24 Oct. 1854
Died: 26 Mar. 1932
 
Notes:
Name given as 'Hon. H.E. Plunkett' in the Illustrated London News of 21 Mar. 1874 (p.283). I guess that this is Horace Curzon Plunkett, who was educated at Oxford. The Chess Player's Chronicle of Apr. 1874 has 'Hon. R.C. Plunkett' on p.57, but 'Hon. H.C. Plunkett' on p.68 of the Jun. 1874 issue.
