   Sep-09-23 Arthur Eva
DataFly: Thanks John. I think Arthur was actually born on the 26th November, 1875, not 1876. There's a matching birth registration in Q4 1875 (mother's maiden name, Quick, is correct) and the 1939 register has his DoB as 26th November, 1875.
   Jun-27-23 William Ewart Napier
DataFly: "Napier's parents returned to England about the turn of the century". That may be the case, but they subsequently returned to the USA as William's father, John Napier, died in Brooklyn on the 18th April, 1914, and William's mother, Isabella Hester (nee Colyer) died in Scranton, ...
   Jun-21-23 Samuel Tinsley
DataFly: No, Marion Tinsley seems to have been 100% American for at least a couple of generations back. His paternal grandfather was Wilbur S Tinsley (1850-1919).
   May-20-23 Robert Lloyd Storr-Best (replies)
DataFly: The Yorkshire Chess site confirms that Lloyd Storr Best's full name was Robert Lloyd Storr-Best:
   May-08-23 Michael John Franklin
DataFly: I'm pretty sure that Mike Franklin was not Scottish Champion in 1951, or indeed any other year! The wording of the "Remembering FM Mike Franklin" article on the British Chess News site is a bit confusing and I think it means that Aird Thomson was Scotttish Champion in 1951, moved to
   May-04-23 Walter Allnutt
DataFly: Eveline Mary Allnutt was the only child of Walter and Ethel (nee Plumbly) Allnutt. Eveline was born in 1912 and died in 1949. She didn't marry. Her mother, Ethel, was in Warlingham Park Mental Hospital at the time of the 1939 register and died there 25 years later, three months ...
   May-02-23 Rawle Anthony Allicock (replies)
DataFly: [Event "100th Edward Lasker Mem"] [Site "New York USA"] [Date "2016.12.10"] [Round "?"] [White "Rawle A Allicock"] [Black "Irina Krush"] [Result "1-0"] 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. g3 c5 4. d5 exd5 5. cxd5 d6 6. Nc3 g6 7. Bg2 Bg7 8. Nf3 O-O 9. O-O Re8 10. Bf4 Ne4 11. ...
   Apr-27-23 Jean P M Rogers
DataFly: Born Jean Pamela Margaret Craker in 1932. She was the British Girls' Under 18 Champion in both 1949 and 1950.
   Apr-16-23 Mary Henniker-Heaton
DataFly: I've just noticed a comment on John Saunders' britbase site: "Note that some years ago Mary Henniker-Heaton's forename was given on BritBase as "Monica" in error. The error was identified and eradicated here in 2017. I'm not sure who or what ...
   Apr-10-23 Thomas Barnes (replies)
DataFly: I can only find Barnes in one census, that of 1871. In that he is described as being unmarried and his occupation as a barrister. The most important detail is that his place of birth is given as Ireland, which suggests that he should be considered as being Irish rather than English.
