Start date: 28 Apr. 1843
End date: 6 May 1843
Staunton claimed afterwards that this was not a formal match, but a guinea was staked on it and Diggle (see Chess Note 4706) argues that it was. Di Felice gives dates as Mar.-Apr. 1843; Sarah's de Saint-Amant page gives date as July; Sarah's page on the main Staunton-de Saint-Amant match gives Apr.-May; Diggle (in Chess Note 4706) gives May. Le Palamède gives the exact dates of each game, 28 Apr. - 6 May.
