Biographical data
Name: Heywood, George Carm  
Born: 22 Oct. 1853
Died: 8 Mar. 1895
 
Notes:
The player listed as playing at Harrogate in 1888 seems to be 'C.C. Heywood' (although the copy of the newspaper article at the web site is rather poor quality). According to Gaige (Chess Personalia), G.C. Heywood was born in London but died in Newcastle. However, Tim Harding has sent me census information (particularly the 1871 census) that he was born in Winkleigh, Devon, not in London and that his middle name was 'Carm'. He later moved to Newcastle. Harding also sent me the references from the British Chess Magazine and the Chess Player's Chronicle.
