I've come across a couple of cuttings featuring Beach's father.

So a simul in Northants.
I used worked near Moulton -- so easy to work out where T J Beach stayed the night. !

The grandfather who had just died in Macclesfield -- was one of the best amateurs in England. See also the name J H Blackburne as a "frequent visitor". Had no rival in the amateur world.

See the York cricket club, York chess league creation. But what is that about Belgium and Warsaw?
