Biographical data
Name: Hamel, Frederick Julius  
   Also known as: Frederic Hamel
Born: 1862
Died: 17 Mar. 1942
 
Notes:
I suspect the 'Hamel' who played in several Manchester events in the 1850s and 1860s was 'L. Hamel' of Glasgow rather than 'F.J. Hamel'. The connection is suggested by a mention in the 7 Feb. 1857 issue of the Illustrated London News (p.124) of a 'Hamel (of Glasgow)' at the annual soirée of the Manchester Club. Tim Harding (personal communication) gives F.J. Hamel's birth date as 'Oct-Nov-Dec 1862', and evidence that F.J. Hamel was the son of Ludwig Hamel.
