Biographical data
Name: Finlinson, Joseph Henry Scott  
Born: 23 Oct. 1845
Died: 7 Sep. 1918
 
Notes:
There were two players named 'Finlinson' active in the Huddersfield Chess Club in the 1860s and 1870s, 'J.H. Finlinson' and 'Arthur Finlinson'. The former appears earlier (1864 as opposed to 1869) and was the stronger player, so in the earlier results, where the player is listed only as 'Finlinson', I presume it is 'J.H. Finlinson'.
