Biographical data
Name: Burroughs, Francis Cooper  
Born: 1827
Died: 9 Dec. 1890
 
Notes:
Name given as 'Burroughes' in the Westminster Papers of 1 Sep. 1876 (p.86), if this is indeed 'F.C. Burroughs'. The British Chess Magazine of Apr. 1886 (p.158) has 'P.C. Burroughs', but this is almost certainly an error for 'F.C. Burroughs'.
