Biographical data
Name: Child, John  
Born: 5 Mar. 1820
Died: 26 Apr. 1891
 
Notes:
Most of the events Child was in list him only by his surname. Gaige has birth and death dates for John Child (died in Bradford?), citing the obituary for 'John Child, B.A.' in the British Chess Magazine of June 1891 (p.289). The Chess Player's Chronicle (vol. 3, 1872-1873, p.314) also has a 'J. Child' of Bradford at the West Yorkshire Chess Association Meeting of May 1873. The Westminster Papers of 1 Apr. 1873 (p.188) has a 'Child, B.A.' playing for Bradford, the initials presumably referring to John Child's university degree. There was also a 'J. Child' who played for Brighton in 1883, but it seems unlikely that he was the Bradford player of the 1870s.
