Biographical data
Name: Wilson, Thomas Bright  
Born: 24 July 1843
Died: 28 Nov. 1915
 
Notes:
The British Chess Magazine of Feb. 1883 (p.68) has 'I.B. Wilson', which I take to be an error for 'T.B. Wilson'. Gaige gives date of death as 28-11-1915; Hooper and Whyld, and Sarah give 1915; Harding, in both his biographies of Blackburne and Steinitz, gives 1898. Steve Mann gives a detailed account of his life from birth, death and census records, giving his death as 28-11-1915, so it seems Harding has erred in this case.
