Biographical data
Name: Empson, J.F.  
   Also known as: J.F. Empson, jun.
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
The Illustrated London News of 19 Aug. 1871 (p.163) lists a 'J.H. Empson' as being present at the Malvern 1871 meeting, and then lists a 'G.F. Empson' amongst the competitors in the 2nd class tournament there. Could both be errors for 'J.F. Empson'? Bell's Life in London (15 Jul. 1855, p.5; 23 Sep. 1855, p.5) lists a 'J.F. Empson' and a 'J.F. Empson, jun' as two separate players. The Chess Player's Magazine of 1 May 1867 (p.156) has 'F. Empson'.
