Biographical data
Name: Kyllman, Max  
   Also known as: Kylman; Kyllmann
Born: 1832
Died: 1867
 
Notes:
Various spellings of his surname are used. The Liverpool Mercury of 27 June 1854 (p.6) and the Field of 29 July 1854 have 'G.C. Kylman', while the Manchester Weekly Express and Review of 22 Feb. 1862 has 'Max Kyllmann'. I am guessing that these were the same player, but do not know which name is correct. The Chess Monthly of Aug. 1859 (p.254) has 'Max Killmann', as does Bell's Life in London of 25 Mar. 1860 (p.2). Harding gives year of birth as '1832?'.
