Biographical data
Name: Bennett, Charles George  
Born: 1856
Died: 27 Sep. 1925
 
Notes:
Gaige gives birth between 28-09-1855 and 27-09-1856. I am guessing that the player named 'G. Bennett' in the 5 Feb. 1881 issue of the Leeds Mercury is C.G. Bennett. The Huddersfield College Magazine of May 1875 (p.162) has 'C.J. Bennett'.
