Chess:

The chess-player “C. H. Wallwork” was active in Manchester from 1897 or earlier, playing in his first county against Yorkshire on 19/02/1898, and remaining active through to at least 1912.

Note:

There were at least four people in the Manchester area who on the face of it could have been the chess-player:

1) Charles Henry Wallwork, iron-founder of H. Wallwork & Co. (b. 1854/55, Oldham; d. 27/02/1936, Salford);

2) Charles Henry Wallwork, french-polisher (b. 21/12/1871, Manchester; d. 20/10/1917, Wallasey);

3) Charles Herbert Wallwork (b. Chorlton); and

4) Charles Henry Wallwork, mercantile clerk (b. 1875, Manchester; d. 06/11/1922, Sale).

Another Charles Henry Wallwork died at or near birth at Salford in 1886.

Gaige’s “Chess Personalia” (not checked) apparently gives the chess-player’s date of birth as 31/03/1875, corresponding to no. 4 above, here assumed, therefore, to be the chess-player.
