Biographical data
Name: Taylor, Samuel  
Born: 1837
Died: 2 Apr. 1911
 
Notes:
I am guessing that the 'Taylor' who played at Leeds 1861 is the 'S. Taylor' of Leeds listed in the Illustrated London News of 6 June 1874 (p.547), identified by Steve Mann as Samuel Taylor. Steve Mann gives date of birth as 1836-1837 and date of death as sometime after 02-04-1911.
