Event table notes

Event data
Place: London
Start date:
End date: Feb. 1843
 
Notes:
Di Felice gives date as Feb. 1843. Sunnucks and Mark Weeks give 1843. Golombek gives 1841-42. Le Palamède (2nd series, v.3, 15 Mar. 1843, p.138) suggests that the match had just finished, as does the Chess Player's Chronicle (v.4, p.30), so I take the end date at least to be Feb. 1843.
