Biographical data
Name: Pearson, Arthur Cyril  
   Also known as: Rev. Arthur Cyril Pearson
Born: 9 Jan. 1838
Died: 8 Nov. 1916
 
Notes:
Gaige says died age 79 on 8-11-1916, but Jelliss gives birth at 9-01-1838, same death date, so he'd have died at 78. Forster has 'Pearson, C.A.' in result list for match between the 'United Universities' and the British Chess Club in 1898 (p.462), but has 'Pearson, the Rev. Arthur Cyril' in his index (p.966).
