Biographical data
Name: Greville, Brooke James  
Born: 1798
Died: 22 Nov. 1884
 
Notes:
His name is usually given as 'Mr. Brooke Greville' as if this was his full surname, so perhaps it should be 'Brooke Greville, James'. The Chess Player's Chronicle of Sept. 1851 (p.282) lists him as 'Greville Brooke, Esq.', and articles on France by 'Greville Brooke' appear in the Sunday Times (e.g. 23 Jan. 1853, p.2). Gaige lists him under Greville, however, as 'Greville, Brooke [James]'.
