Event table notes

Event data
Name: 12th Canadian Championship Tournament
Place: Ottawa
Start date: 30 Jan. 1884
End date: Feb. 1884
Yanofsky has 'M. Princhard', 'J. Casey', and 'H. Taylor' at this event; Di Felice has 'Punchard', 'Casey, George Elliott', and 'Taylor, G.H.'; Gaige has just 'Punchard', 'Casey' and 'Taylor'. G.H. Taylor was an English player in the 1860s, so I take this to be H. Taylor. The British Chess Magazine also has 'Punchard' and I have his full name 'Charles Punchard' from correspondence from David Cohen. Di Felice gives start date Feb. 9, 1884, but the British Chess Magazine gives Jan. 30. I presume that it ended in Februrary.
