Event table notes

Event data
Place: Manchester
Start date: July 1857
End date: Aug. 1857
Di Felice gives +5-4 for Kipping; Hindle gives +7-8=1 for Kipping, as does the Era of 9 Aug. 1857 (p.5). These were offhand games, not part of the knockout tournament. The tournament took place in Aug. 1857 but according to the Era of 9 Aug. 1857 (p.5) Anderssen arrived in Manchester on 23 Jul. 1857. In the 22 Aug. 1857 issue of the Illustrated London News (p.195), Staunton indicates that Anderssen had to leave before his match with Staunton could be arranged, so I presume these games with Kipping were played in July and Aug. 1857. A number of them are given in the Illustrated London News in Sept., Oct. and Nov. 1857 (4 wins each).
