Biographical data
Name: Kleczyński, Jan (1)  
Born: 8 June 1837
Died: 15 Sep. 1895
 
Notes:
I am guessing that the Jan Kleczyński who played at Warsaw 1884 is the same as the player active in paris in the 1860s named 'Klezinsky' in Cornil and La Nouvelle Régence, and 'Klesinsky' in the Illustrated London News (23 May 1863, p.579). The Illustrated London News of 5 Sept. 1868 (p.235) gives 'Kleczynski'. Also, a 'Kleerynski' or 'Klerynski' is listed among participants at a tournament in Warsaw in 1868 (Illustrated London News, 1 Aug. 1868, p.115; The Chess World, Aug. 1868, vol.4, p.178), who I am again guessing is the same person. The Chess World of Aug. 1865 (p.167) has 'Ktezinski'.
