Biographical data
Name: Barry, George Frith  
Born:
Died: 14 Feb. 1891
 
Notes:
The Chess Player's Magazine of Apr. 1865 (p.93) has 'C.S. Barry' playing against Stewart in the St. James Club - Dublin Athenaeum Club Match, but the book Chess Match by Electric Telegraph has 'Geo. Frith Barry'. The Illustrated London News of 7 Oct. 1865 (p.347) has 'G. Bury' in the second tournament at the Dublin Congress of 1865, and 'G. Barry' in the third, but these are undoubtedly the same player, George Frith Barry.
