Event table notes

Event data
Name: City of London - Saint George's Club Match
Place: London
Start date: 24 Mar. 1881
End date: 24 Mar. 1881
 
Notes:
Sergeant says Potter won 2-0 against Owen, but the Chess Monthly of Apr. 1881 (p.225) gives the score as 1-0. It is mentioned there, though, that one game was undecided at the end of play, Owen-Potter, but that it was played out on 26 Mar. 1881 and won by Potter. This is confirmed in the British Chess Magazine of Feb. 1885 (pp.60-61). Sergeant has E.M. Jacson at this event, but since he was born in May 1867, he would have been 13 years old at the time of this event. I have tentatively identified the player as S. Jackson, who played at the City of London Club in the early 1870s (see, for example, the Illustrated London News of 19 Mar. 1870, p.307). I am guessing that the 'Puller' at this event was Charles Giles Puller and not his brother, Arthur Giles Puller, who was less active in the years before his death in 1885.
