Biographical data
Name: Bayliss, Wyke  
   Also known as: Sir Wyke Bayliss
Born: 21 Oct. 1835
Died: 5 Apr. 1906
 
Notes:
Staunton has 'Baylis' in the 28 Nov. 1868 issue of the Illustrated London News (p.531). The Chess Monthly of July 1885 (p.325) has 'W. Wyke-Bayliss'. The Era of 11 Dec. 1864 (p.4) says the best member of the newly established Clapham Park Club is 'Baylis', who I am guessing is Wyke Bayliss.
