Biographical data
Name: Smith, T. (3)  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
This T. Smith played in Harrogate in 1888. Clearly not Thomas Smith the problem composer in London who died in 1871. There was also a Thomas Smith of Huddersfield in 1869, who might have been one or the other of these two players (Illustrated London News, 12 June 1869, p.603), as well as a 'T.A. Smith' at the Yorkshire meeting of 1852 (Chess Player's Chronicle, Nov. 1852, p.343). I am guessing that the T. Smith of Leeds who played at Bradford in 1886 is the same as the T. Smith who played at Harrogate in 1888.
