Biographical data
Name: Gümpel, Charles Godfrey  
   Also known as: Carl G. Gümpel
Born: 1833
Died: 1920
 
Notes:
Gaige gives date of birth as 'c1835' and date of death as '1921??'. Harding says in Eminent Victorian Chess Players (p.381) that the death of a Carl G. Gumpel is registered in Bromley in 1920, and his age at death is given as 87, so that his birth year must have been 1832 or 1833. In Steinitz in London (p.243), Harding gives his dates as '1833?-1921'.
