Notes:
Di Felice gives 'M.E. Hughes', but Whyld gives 'H. Hughes'. Di Felice and Whyld have 'E. Jephcott' losing to Cohen in the first round; the Era (9 Aug. 1857, p.5) has 'A. Jephcott', but the 16 Aug. 1957 issue (p.5) has 'E. Jephcott', as does the Report of the Manchester Meeting of 1857. Di Felice says that G.A. Owen forfeited to Francis in the third round; the Era of 16 Aug. 1857 (p.5) says that 'Mr. Francis beat Mr. G.A. Owen'; the New York Clipper of 12 Sep. 1857 says that G.A. Owen was 'unhorsed' by Francis; the Report of the Manchester Meeting of 1857 says that 'Francis, A.M., was recorded winner against Owen, G.A., who could not remain to play further. I take that to mean a forfeit.
