Biographical data
Name: Jenay, Eduard  
   Also known as: de Jenay
Born: 1812
Died: 1880
 
Notes:
Name given as 'Jené' in the Illustrated London News of 4 June 1859 (p.550), and as 'Jeney' in the Chess Player's Chronicle of Jan. 1861 (p.27), and as 'von Jenay' in the Sunday Times of 21 June 1857 (supplement, p.4) and the Chess Player's Magazine of Aug. 1864 (p.251). Peter Anderberg, in an article in the joural 'Caissa', gives his age as 67 on 9 Mar. 1880, which would mean that he was born between 10-03-1812 and 9-03-1813. However, Zavatarelli gives his dates as 'about 1820-1880'.
