Biographical data
Name: Walsh, John Henry  
Born: 21 Oct. 1810
Died: 12 Feb. 1888
 
Notes:
I am guessing that the 'J.H. Walsh' of the Worcestershire 1852 tournament is the 'John Henry Walsh' given by Gaige, born 1810 in London. Confusingly, Staunton, in the Chess Player's Chronicle of 1852 (p.356) gives 'H.D. Walsh' in this event, but in the 1851 volume (p.374), the 1853 volume (p.62) and in the 22 Nov. 1851 Illustrated London News, he gives 'J.H. Walsh'.
