Frederick Raymond Pelly, Corinthians (Lloyd’s Weekly News: March 19, 1893):



  1. Gerald Dewhurst, an England international, was actually Gerard Dewhurst.

    Admittedly he’s Gerald Powys Dewhurst in Cambridge University Alumni 1261-1900. But he’s Gerard Powys Dewhurst in more sources than I can name here. Just a small selection: the Repton School Register; Censuses of 1881, 1891, 1901, and 1911; Births Marriages and Deaths; Slater’s Manchester Directory 1903; many editions of The Times (‘Mr Gerald P. Dewhurst, chairman of Williams Deacon’s Bank’), including his obituary, which confirms he played international football; and many railway websites with photos of a steam train (!) called the Gerard Powys-Dewhurst, built in 1920.

    All the best,

    Cris Freddi
