Biographical data
Name: Stanley, Charles Henry  
   Also known as: C.H.S.
Born: 2 Sep. 1819
Died: 6 Oct. 1901
 
Notes:
Feenstra Kuiper and Golombek have death date 16-03-1894. Gaige and Townsend have death date 6-10-1901. Although Stanley moved to New York around 1842, problems by 'C. Stanley, of Brighton' were appearing in the Illustrated London News (e.g. 27 Sept. 1845, p.208), and the Chess Player's Chronicle (e.g. Sept. 1845, p.257) in 1845. This was, however, a different Charles Stanley (see Townsend, pp.93-94).
