Biographical data
Name: Andrews, Ferdinand Henry  
   Also known as: F.H. Andrews, jun.
Born: 8 Sep. 1825
Died: 12 Sep. 1898
 
Notes:
Di Felice, British Chess Magazine and the Chess Player's Chronicle have 'F.H. Andrews'; Yanofsky has 'F.E. Andrews'? Also, Staunton gives 'F.G. Andrews' as the honorary Secretary of the Quebec Chess Club in 1861 (Illustrated London News, 26 Jan. 1861, p.80). Alan McGowan has sent me copies of official records giving full name and birth and death dates.
