Biographical data
Name: Burt, John Norman  
Born: 1834
Died: 11 Apr. 1888
 
Notes:
Gaige says died age c53. John Richards (Introduction to 'The Bristol Chess Club') says died age 55. Given as 'T. Burt' in the Illustrated London News of 12 Nov. 1870 (p.507), or was that a different Burt? The Chess Player's Magazine of Feb. 1865 (p.57) has 'Burtt' playing for Bristol. I am guessing that this was J.N. Burt. The Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle of Feb. 1869 (vol.1, p.133) and Apr. 1869 (vol.1, p.186) has 'J. Birt' of Bristol. I am guessing that this, too, was J.N. Burt.
