Event data
Name: 9th New Zealand Championship
Place: Wanganui
Start date: Dec. 1895
End date: 6 Jan. 1896
 
Notes:
The scores given in the Oamaru Mail of 7 Jan. 1896 (p.3) total to 90.5 instead of 91, as they should for a full 14-player single-round all-play-all tournament. It is not clear who the missing half point belongs to, so I will leave the scores as they are, despite the small inaccuracy. Barnes left before his play-off for third with Hookham, so Hookham was awarded third prize.
