Marriages


Nelly Adamson Nelly Adamson marries the tennis player Pierre-Henri Landry.
The date is uncertain. Tod Robbins, her first husband, died 10 May 1949.

Actually Nelly Adamson married Monsieur Landry much earlier, in late 1930-ies ! As it seems she changed her name back to Adamson it may only mean she divorced Landry around 1949 (that's why the editor assumed that Nelly Landry "married" Adamson).

I've never heard of her marriage to Mr. Robbins, so it was either short-lasting, or it never took place. I hope someone can solve this mystery soon.

As written on wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nelly_Landry

"On January 16, 1934, Adamson (not yet Landry) married American author and emigre Tod Robbins at the town hall in Villefranche on the French Riviera. Robbins was an expert amateur athlete. Together, he and Adamson became a formidable doubles team. Adamson was Robbins's fourth wife, and they remained married through World War II and Robbins's long imprisonment in a German concentration camp. After the war, Adamson stayed with Robbins until his death (May 10, 1949), remarrying afterward.[3] Nelly Adamson married Pierre Landry and lastly Marcel Renault, both former French tennis players."

Hi Jimbo. I think Wikipedia is a very unreliable source, because everyone can edit it. Here is a link to Le Figaro issue from 1937-02-15, look at the 2nd page: there's a nice picture of some cute bride - it's Nelly Adamson with a description below that she just married Pierre Landry in Saint-Sauveur Cathedral in Bruges (Belgium).

Good find LKK!! So now we have a sure fact.

About her first marriage, also IMDb writes that (on 1933 not 1934, and calling her one time Adamson and one time Anderson, British (!) player).
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0730317/bio

But this marriage is strange: on 16 January 1934 she would have been 17 and Tod Robbins 45....

And I didn't find trace of Tod Robbins as tennis player.

Jimbo, maybe ask Newmark about this British player Nellie Adamson / Anderson. He may have some info on her, or some old ranking that could confirm she existed.

That British player Nellie Anderson is certainly a mistake of IMDb.
In our yearly threads there isn't trace of her.
