Biographical data
Name: Lafitte, A.  
   Also known as: A.L...
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
Listed as 'A.L...' in La Régence for the grant tournoi of October 1856, but a footnote on p.337, identifies him as 'A. Lafitte'. Probably not the 'J. Laffitte' mentioned in Le Palamède 1844 (p.37) in the context of bank transfers for the stakes of the proposed Staunton-de Saint Amant rematch.
