Biographical data
Name: Werner, Maximilian Georg Edward  
Born: 6 Oct. 1836
Died: 18 Oct. 1919
 
Notes:
Staunton, in the Illustrated London News of 10 Dec. 1859 (p.561), gives 'Edward Werner' as a member of the Bradford (Yorkshire) club, and in the 18 Feb. 1860 issue (p.166) gives 'M.E. Werner' as a member of the Bradford club. The Chess Player's Chronicle has 'Mr. E. Werner' of Bradford (June 1860, p.165; Aug. 1860, p.249) and 'Mr. M.E. Werner' of Bradford (Oct. 1860, p.310). The Chess Player's Quarterly Chronicle likewise has 'Mr. M.E. Werner' of Bradford (Feb. 1868, p.25) but 'M.E. Werner' of Halifax (Feb. 1868, p.27) and 'Mr. E. Werner' (May 1868, p.33). Forster (Amos Burn biography) has M.E. Werner as a member of the Manchester Chess Club from 1869. I therefore assume that 'E. Werner' and 'M.E. Werner' are the same person and that his name was 'M. Edward Werner'. The Quarterly for Chess History, 1868, p.313, has a W. Werner?
