Notes:
Start and end dates provided by Tim Harding. The start date comes from the (London) Standard of 23 Apr. 1895 and the Field of 27 Apr. 1895. The end date is fairly certain, as the Field of 18 May 1895 reported the score +3-3=3 and that the match was expected to be abandoned. The eighth game had been played on 13 May 1895.
