Event table notes

Event data
Name: 4th West Yorkshire Chess Association Meeting
Place: Huddersfield and Manchester
Start date: 21 May 1859
End date: 24 June 1859
 
Notes:
This event took place on 21 May 1859 in Huddersfield, but in the final, Thorold and Kipping drew their game and played later in Manchester on June 23 and 24 to break the tie by best of 3 games. The Chess Player's Chronicle of July 1859 (p.196) confuses E. Thorold with the Rev. W. Thorold, corrected in the Aug. issue (p.254).
