Biographical data
Name: Halford, John  
   Also known as: John Halford, jun.
Born: 1841
Died: 26 Nov. 1881
 
Notes:
Gaige gives birth between 27-11-1840 and 26-11-1841. The Chess Player's Magazine of Aug. 1864 (p.243) has 'J. Halford, Jun.' and Staunton gives 'J. Holford, jun.' in the Birmingham - Worcester Club Match of Apr. 1866. I presume these are the same person.
