The Wimbledon site uses Hughes D'Eath (and not Hughes D'Aeth). Geneology records are consistent in using D'Aeth.
The "Mme Popp" on the Wimbledon site is in fact Toni Popp of Germany.
Countess Clara von der Schulenburg played as 'Adams'. Thanks to Elegos, LKK, and Newmark for helping to solve the identity of 'Adams'
From "Lawn Tennis and Croquet", July 3, 1901:
"'Miss Adams', a visitor from the Continent, is a steady baseline player with some volleying power, good backhand and forehand drives and considerable mastery of the ball. Unfortunately she had the most uninteresting draw [at Wimbledon] - a walkover and two very easy ties before she met Mrs Sterry."
From the same edition of "Lawn Tennis and Croquet":
"'Miss Adams' has never before played on grass courts, and was not quite at home with their slowness compared with the very fast courts she is acquainted to. She hails from the Continent, where she is by far the best lady player."
