Biographical data
Name: Bearne, W.J.  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
There were also Northampton players named James Bearn (born 1820) and John Hobson Bearn (born 1815), active in the 1850s (see Steve Mann's Yorkshire Chess History website), but it is more likely that the 'Bearne' who played in the City of London Club events in 1871 was W.J. Bearne, who is already mentioned in 1865 in the Household Chess Magazine (31 Jan. 1865, p.16) and the Chess Player's Magazine (June 1865, p.185).
