Biographical data
Name: Stewart, Henry Cattley  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
I have tentatively identified the player at the Ries' Divan Tournament of 1856 as H.C. Stewart, mentioned in the Illustrated London News of 19 July 1862 (p.91). Tim Harding (personal communication) has confirmed this, pointing out that H.C. Stewart was secretary of the St. James Club for several years. He also argues that this was not the Stewart who was at the anniversary dinner of the Liverpool Chess Club on 15 Jan. 1842 (Chess Player's Chronicle, 1842, vol.2, p.224), probably Henry A. Stewart, as listed in Edgar's Liverpool Chess Club (1893), p.70. H.C. Stewart's last name is sometimes given as 'Steward', e.g. in the Era of 8 July 1860 (p.14) and 10 Mar. 1861 (p.15), and 'Stuart', in the Era of 26 Feb. 1865 (p.14).
