Biographical data
Name: Wright, George William  
Born: 1838
Died: 1926
 
Notes:
The son of this player was also named George William Wright (born 1869) so some of these results might in principle be his, but in that case one would expect him to be distinguished from his father as 'G.W. Wright, jun.', since both were active in the same location.
