Description Edit | History

George Hope Lloyd-Verney (March 5, 1842 - June 14, 1896) was a game designer and army veteran from Esher, England. Around 1881, he wrote a booklet on his invention of the game Four-Player Chess, although there were earlier variants and have been later variants of the game. In 1885, Verney wrote an extensive book on chess variants. Verney's four-player chess variant gained popularity around London which had a four-handed chess club from 1885 until World War II.

He was the son of Sir Harry Verney, a military officer and Liberal member of Parliament, and the grandson of General Sir Harry Calvert. He was married to Harriet Julia Morforwyn Hinde, the daughter of Major-General Charles Thomas Edward Hinde, whom he married on October 23, 1866. As a captain he served in a rifle brigade. As a colonel he led the 3rd Battalion of the Hampshire Regiment.

He was baptized with the name George Hope Verney. On February 11, 1888, his name was legally changed to George Hope Lloyd-Verney.
