Biographical data
Name: Kipping, James Stanley  
Born: 18 Nov. 1822
Died: 20 Apr. 1899
 
Notes:
Name given as 'Kepping' in the Illustrated London News of 14 May 1853 (p.363) and the Chess Player's Chronicle of Jun. 1853 (p.180), and 'Kiepping' in the Illustrated London News of 22 Oct. 1853 (p.343). Gaige gives full name as 'James Stanley Kipping'. Staunton gives 'John Kipping' in the Illustrated London News of 24 Nov. 1855 (p.626) but 'James Kipping' in the issue of 31 Oct. 1857 (p.446). My guess is that 'John' was just an error. Gaige gives his date of death as 20 Apr. 1899; Sergeant gives 26 Apr. 1899.
