Event table notes

Event data
Place: Manchester
Start date: Aug. 1861
End date: Sep. 1861
 
Notes:
Hooper and Whyld say that the first Pindar-Blackburne match took place in July 1861 and that this second match took place 3 months later (i.e. Oct. 1861), but the Sept. 1861 issue of the Chess Player's Chronicle gives a partial result of +4-1 for Blackburne and says that the match is ongoing. The Era of 1 Sept. 1861 gives the result to that date as +4-1=2. The Field of 7 Sept. 1861 (information from Owen Hindle, via Tim Harding) gives the final result as +5-1=1, so the number of draws is not entirely clear.
