Biographical data
Name: Lovelock, James Frederick  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
The City of London Club Chess Magazine (Feb. 1874, p.23) has 'J. Lovelock'. The Field of 10 Jan. 1874 mentions 'G.F. Lovelock' as a committee member of the City of London Club. I will guess that this was an error. The Chess Player's Chronicle of 18 Oct. 1881 (p.504) has 'J F Lovelock'.
