Event table notes

Event data
Name: City of London Club Junior Handicap
Place: London, England
Start date: Nov. 1874
End date: May 1875
 
Notes:
This was a 48-player knockout tournament, in which the 24 losers in the first round went on to compete for fourth, fifth and sixth prizes, in a separate knockout sequence, called Section B. It is likely that 2 wins were required to win a round, as in the senior handicap tournament of the City of London Club running at the same time, but no actual scores are given for any pairing (except that it is mentioned that Maas lost a few games to some of his opponents before ultimately winning the tournament). I record all results as 1-0 to be conservative. One of the first round results cannot be used, the win by Osborn over Murton, because in the original listing of pairings for the first round, Murton's opponent was listed as 'Clark', in the fourth class, but he seems to have been replaced by Osborn, whose class is not known. There is another discrepancy between the original first round pairing list and later results, where Taylor's opponent was first listed as 'Peron', in the third class, and later appears as 'Leon'. I will guess here that the original list simply had the name written incorrectly and that Leon was in fact in the third class (but this could be wrong). Second round results are not given, and many could not be deduced, either because the pairings of players aren't known or because the result is not known. In Section A, 5 of the 12 results have been determined (Stevens - Gastineau, Peyer - Baynes, Maas - Taylor, Mainland - Mayerhofer, and Rabbeth - Kunwald), and in Section B, only 1 of the 12 results has been determined (Day - Dyer). In round 3, only four of the 6 results have been determined in Section A (Hill - Rippin, Lowson - Peyer, Maas - Whomes, and Rabbeth - Mainland), and only two of the 6 Section B results have been determined (Rodgerson - Ifould, and Atkinson - Day). In round 4, two out of three results in each section can be deduced. Then the final three in each section played off, and we are only given the order of prize-winners, so I deduce that in Section A, Maas beat Cutler and Cutler beat Rabbeth (Rabbeth forfeited to Maas - they did not play) and in Section B, I deduce that Rodgerson beat Atkinson and Batt, and Atkinson beat Batt.
