Event table notes

Event data
Name: City of London Club - Athenaeum Club Match
Place: London, England
Start date: 10 May 1876
End date: 10 May 1876
 
Notes:
The Illustrated London News of 20 May 1876 says this was played 'on the 10th ult.', which should mean 10 Apr. 1876. This event is not mentioned in Harding's biography of Blackburne, and in fact, he has Blackburne playing a game in the Simpson's Divan tournament on 10 Apr. 1876. Could Blackburne have played both in the same day, or could the Illustrated London News have meant 'the 10th inst.', i.e., 10 May 1876? I will guess that the latter was the case, or else why would the Illustrated London News have waited over a month to print the result? The City of London Club team was the Knight Class team, apart from Blackburne, of course, who gave his opponent Knight odds. I do not know which 'Swainson' played in this event and am only guessing that it was 'A. Swainson' rather than 'C. Swainson'.
