Oct-07-08  Karpova: Jeremy Spinrad on page 8 of his August 2007 edition of "New Stories about Old Chessplayers" titled <Obituaries>:

Spinrad: <The last words of Morphy's friend Frederick Perrin (1815-1889) apply to many chess players, and make a fitting conclusion to this article. As reported in the 'Brooklyn Eagle' of January 28, 1889, they were "Doctor, I am puzzled over that last move of mine.">

A little about Frederick Perrin:

  MissScarlett: <Frederick Perrin was born in England on December 5, 1813 [sic - 1815 is supposedly correct], to Swiss immigrants. His father James Frederick Perrin was a business man who operated a counting house. He was deemed a merchant, who went bankrupt with his partners, Joseph Clansie and John Bodman in 1817. His father must not have been held down to long because 12 years later, Frederick was sent to school in Switzerland.>

His father went bust again in 1829, so it seems more likely that Fred was offloaded to relatives in Switzerland than sent to finishing school.

Pater Perrin also crops up in 1827 in connection with a salacious court case involving a notorious con-man, <Gregor MacGregor> ( MacGregor had seduced a man's wife and then threatened him to a duel - this latter circumstance, apparently, being considered illegal by then. Perrin was one of the two called upon by the accused to put up his bail or surety, although Perrin was objected to on the grounds he wasn't a man of property.

I don't yet know how the case turned out, or what connection MacGregor had to Perrin, but I'm sensing the possibility that Fred's father may have been a bit of a wrong'un.

  MissScarlett: <<Frederick Perrin was born in England on December 5, 1813 [sic - 1815 is supposedly correct]>

This is apparently confirmed by the baptismal record. Underneath the date of baptism, March 27th [1816], is <Born, Dec[ember] 5th>. If any year prior to 1815 was meant, the year would be given, as evidenced by other entries on that and other pages.

The parents are <James Frederick> and <Henrietta>.
