Biographical data
Name: Chambers, John Dibbin  
Born: 1842
Died: 15 June 1930
 
Notes:
Forster, Harding, and Di Felice have 'Chambers, John Dillon'. McGowan has 'John Dibbin Chambers'. Possibly the 'G.D. Chambers' who played in the circulating chess game reported in the Chess Monthly of Sept. 1883 (see Chess Note 4652), but the first initial 'G' would then have to be an error. Gaige has date of birth as 1842. McGowan has date of birth as 'c1845'.
