Event data
Name: City of London - Saint George's Club Match
Place: London, England
Start date: 30 May 1890
End date: 30 May 1890
 
Notes:
A number of players at this event are only tentatively identified, since the report in the British Chess Magazine gives mostly only surnames, and in some cases where initials are given, there is some doubt about their correctness. For example, I am guessing that 'Bateman' was 'E. Jones-Bateman', a relatively strong London player of the time. 'Jackson', I suppose is 'E.M. Jackson'. 'Knight' I guess is 'W.J. Knight'. 'C.E. Lambert' is almost certainly 'C.J. Lambert'. 'A. Block' I am guessing is actually 'T. Block' without further evidence of another player of the same surname but different initial. 'Howell' could be 'P. Howell', 'A. Howell', or 'J.D. Howell', all City of London Club players of about this time, and I really have little idea which played in this event. I am guessing at 'Percy Howell' on the strength of his more numerous mentions in the chess magazines, and the fact that it was he who played for the City of London Club against the Saint George's in 1891. 'Ross' was probably 'T. Ross', as his name is given in many issues of the British Chess Magazine of the time, and I suspect that this is 'Thomas Richard Edmund Ross', who was still playing for the City of London Club in 1909-1910. 'Stephens' I guess is 'S.J. Stevens'. 'Puller' is very likely 'Charles Giles Puller' (or 'Charles Giles-Puller' as he became known). I am also not sure whether Gibbons' initials were 'T.E.' or 'T.C.'.
