Notes:
This was a 14-player knockout, in which players were knocked out only after losing three matches. Each match between pairs of players was for the first to win two games. In most cases, I know only who beat who, not the score of the pairing, and these I record as 1-0 for the winner. In cases where I know that the match was won 2-0 or 2-1, that is indicated, though I don't always know how many draws there were if any. In the 3rd round, I can only include the match A.F. Chamier - L. Goldsmith, because although I know who won and who lost in that round, I don't know the pairings aside from this one. In the fourth round, the result +1-0=0 for Stephen-Runting is exact, because Runting withdrew after losing one game.
