The mixed doubles final at this tournament was played over the best of five sets for a number of years.
There was no ladies doubles in 1883.

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1883): "[...] a ladies' singles competition was arranged to take place in the private grounds of the Fitzwilliam Club, and also a gentlemen's handicap, both of these to be played on asphalt." [...]

"The competition for the Ladies' Championship promised to be of unusual interest, but lost much of its international character by the presence on the ground, as spectators only, of three of the best players in Ireland. The weather was all that could be desired, though the radiation from the asphalt proved trying to those engaged in active play. [...]

"Thursday, June 1. A more delightful day could scarcely be conceived, and, consequently, the pretty little ground in Wilton Place was crowded with a large and fashionable attendance, the ladies' dresses forming a costume exhibition, which could scarcely be eclipsed for either beauty or taste..."

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1883): "Saturday, June 3. [...] There was great excitement over the final match, but unfortunately heavy rain commenced at 2p.m., and it had to be played in the wet. Miss Gibbs appeared to forget her 'tennis arm', but Mr Donald Stewart played splendidly, his service was particulalry good, and the result was that Mr Donald Stewart and Mrs Hill beat Mr Sweet and Miss Gibbs by two sets to love. [...]

"The prizes were given away at 4.30 by Lady Freeling in drenching rain, but, as Admiral Pelham van Donop remarked, "Who cares twopence for the rain? We have had a successful week."

Draw notes:

Mrs Kirkby possibly=Georgina Kirkby as per Bath 1881.

The mixed doubles was called "scratch pairs".

August 1-3, Leamington, Warwickshire, England, England (Grass)
Venues: Jephson Gardens for the first two days, and then the final at the Leamington Club's own ground at the Manor House Hotel.

MX: Maud Watson/Erksine Watson d. Miss Rawlinson/W.H. Rawlinson 6-2 6-1 6-1

This was the inaugural edition of this tournament, which did not initially feature either a women's singles or women's doubles event. Erskine Watson was the brother of Maud and Lilian.

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1884): "A very modest programme had been issued by the committee at Leamington Lawn Tennis Club for their first essay at an open tournament, and this, they had naturally supposed, would have been easily worked through in two days. In this, however, they were mistaken, but it was what one might call a pleasant sort of mistake, as it was due to the large number of entries they received being greatly in excess of what they had expected. [...]

"The committee had been most liberal in the way of prizes as rather more than eighty-five guineas' worth were offered for competition, and nearly all the prizes were worth more than the sums named, as a liberal discount had been obtained. The beautiful Jephson Gardens had been obtained for the first and second days, and then the adjournment was made for the final ties to the club's own ground at the Manor House Hotel.

"Ten courts had been laid out at the gardens, and some of these were in first-rate order, but those which had been obliged to be marked out at the last, when the large number of entries were obtained, were of course not in such a good state.

"The weather was beautifully fine on all three days, but a wind, though not very strong, blowing right down the grounds, made it desirable to win the choice of courts. [...]

"The tournament may be said to have been a great success in every way, as a large and fashionable assembly gathered together each day on the grounds and evinced great interest in every one of the matches. By many people Leamington is thought to be the original birthplace of lawn tennis, and now that the tournament under notice has proved so successful the committee have determined to hold one next season on a still larger scale, and with such a popular management this is certain to be even a still greater success Dr Owens made a most efficient referee.

"A pleasant feature of the second day was the presentation of a travelling case to Mr E.S. Adams, the honorary secretary, by Dr Forbes Winslow, on behalf of the competitors in the matches to mark their sense of the great courtesy and trouble he had shown in carrying out all the arrangements which were decidedly good in every particular."

The Hydropathic Establishment at this favourite watering place attracts during the summer months a considerable number of visitors from England, principally Lancashire and the Midland Counties, and to the visitors is due the credit of these tournaments.

"Among Scotch watering places Moffat is distinguished by possessing public recreation grounds, containing several lawn tennis courts kept always in excellent order. All day, in fine weather, these courts are frequented by players and spectators, presenting a pretty and lively scene."

Constance Smith (nee Langley) is listed as Mrs CJ Smith

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1883): "At the commencement of the opening set, it appeared as if Miss Watson would have rather an easy victory, as she gained the first four games in succession; alternate games then followed, Miss Watson taking the set by six games to two. On changing courts, Mrs Smith won the second set by six games to three, Miss Watson gaining the first, fifth and seventh games. Each lady won a love game, and deuce was called in three of the games.

"For the final set ends were changed after every game. Miss Watson won the opening game, then three in succession fell to Mrs Smith, but her opponent again brought the games equal, and also gaining the seventh and eighth made the score five to three in her favour. Both the ninth and the tenth games were taken by Mrs Smith. The vantage game was gained by Miss Watson by four strokes to two, and after thirty-all had been called in the twelfth, two strokes in succession fell to the same lady, who thus won the game, set and match, this entitling her to the first prize."

Draw note: Is Miss Davies Edith Davies or F Davies?

Re: 1882 results

Comings and Goings:

Lilian Cole was married to fellow player Chalres Edward Pine-Coffin

Frances Matilda "Fanny" Morris Married Harry Bathurst Christie, 16 September 1882

(per Newmark)
"Fanny" Morris won the singles title at the West of England Championships in Bath in 1882. Contemporary sources list her as "Mrs F. Morris", but research indicates she wasn't married at the time she won that singles title. What's more, she more than likely stopped playing lawn tennis after her marriage.

* From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1883): "Saturday, June 3. [...] There was great excitement over the final match, but unfortunately heavy rain commenced at 2p.m., and it had to be played in the wet. Miss Gibbs appeared to forget her 'tennis arm', but Mr Donald Stewart played splendidly, his service was particulalry good, and the result was that Mr Donald Stewart and Mrs Hill beat Mr Sweet and Miss Gibbs by two sets to love. [...]

"The prizes were given away at 4.30 by Lady Freeling in drenching rain, but, as Admiral Pelham van Donop remarked, "Who cares twopence for the rain? We have had a successful week."

FI: H. Abercrombie d. Miss Bradley 6-4, 6-1

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1883): "[...] a ladies' singles competition was arranged to take place in the private grounds of the Fitzwilliam Club, and also a gentlemen's handicap, both of these to be played on asphalt." [...]

"The competition for the Ladies' Championship promised to be of unusual interest, but lost much of its international character by the presence on the ground, as spectators only, of three of the best players in Ireland. The weather was all that could be desired, though the radiation from the asphalt proved trying to those engaged in active play. [...]

"Thursday, June 1. A more delightful day could scarcely be conceived, and, consequently, the pretty little ground in Wilton Place was crowded with a large and fashionable attendance, the ladies' dresses forming a costume exhibition, which could scarcely be eclipsed for either beauty or taste..."

Re: 1882 results

August 22-25, Moffat*, Scotland (Grass)

FI: A. Forrest d. Miss Bankier [score?]
--

DF: A. Forrest/Miss Forrest d. Miss Forbes/B. Jardine [score?]
--

XDF: Arthur Fuller/Miss Hillier d. P. de Santi/Miss Bankier [score?]

* This was the first edition of the Moffat tournament.

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1883): "A highly successful tournament was held at Moffat, on Tuesday, August 22, and remaining days of the week. The Hydropathic Establishment at this favourite watering place attracts during the summer months a considerable number of visitors from England, principally Lancashire and the Midland Counties, and to the visitors is due the credit of these tournaments.

"Among Scotch watering places Moffat is distinguished by possessing public recreation grounds, containing several lawn tennis courts kept always in excellent order. All day, in fine weather, these courts are frequented by players and spectators, presenting a pretty and lively scene."
