Notes:
Could this be the 'Young, Henry' listed as a suscriber to Williams's 'Souvenir of the Bristol Chess Club' (1845)? Name given as 'T.H. Young' in the 20 Jan. 1861 issue of the Era (p.13), almost certainly in error. Name given as 'H.J. Young' in the 15 Dec. 1861 issue of the Era (p.5), also in error.
