Biographical data
Name: Pfahl, J.  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
The Transactions of the British Chess Association for 1868 and 1869 list a 'T. Pfahl' as a subscribing member. However, a 'J. Pfahl' was a member of the Jewish Working Men's Club in London in 1877 (Illustrated London News, 2 June 1877, p.527) and notes I have from Tim Harding on the City of London Club Handicap tournament of 1873-1874 list 'J. Pfahl' as a participant. However, the Field of 10 Jan. 1874 mentions 'G. Pfahl' as a committee member of the City of London Club. I will assume that all the results I have for a player named 'Pfahl' in London around this time were for J. Pfahl, but further investigation is really needed.
