Event table notes

Event data
Place: London, England
Start date: Nov. 1858
End date: 1858
 
Notes:
Spinrad gives date as 1856, but the Chess Player's Chronicle of Jan. 1859 gives the result along with Morphy's match results of 1858, and the (Toronto) Globe (06-01-1877) has this match in 1858. The 14 Nov. 1858 issue of the Era (p.5) and the 7 Nov. 1858 issue of the Sunday Times (supplement, p.3) say the match had started.
