Notes:
For some pairings we know only who won, not what the score of the mini-match was. In such cases, I have listed the result as +1-0 for the winner. This will introduce a small bias, if the score was really +2-1 or +1-0=1, for example. Like the other two sections, this one had 16 players. But the mini-match between J. Clarke and W.T. Chappell was won by Clarke by default. No games appear to have been played. Also, Forster has only a question mark for Beadall's class, so I cannot include his win over H.F. Down or his loss to J.J. Watts. The Era of 2 Apr. 1871 (p.4) has a game between Cole and Harper from this event, stated to be won by Cole. However, Forster has a score of +1-0=1 for Harper over Cole here, and it is certainly Harper who went on to the next round.
