re: 1899 results

1890-1899

Thanks David and everyone else for this great results thread.

What is the opinion on Adine Masson and the French Championships – she is noted in 1897 as the first winner but not mentioned in 1898-1899 – Wiki has her down as the winner in these years but notes she was the only entrant?

What is the policy on defending champions? In the Challenge Round system do they automatically qualify as the runner up/losing finalist even if they do not defend/play in the tournament or do they forfeit this? I suppose it’s particularly important when noting down slam results?

Are the above 2 points subjective or is there a standard/universal opinion on these matters?

I usually credit Masson and defending champions even if they don’t defend and class it as a walkover since I reckon they’ve earned their w/o by being the defending champion (even though they dont defend) - semantics!– anyway CR not a good idea I guess which is why they eventually got rid of it.

Incidentally Northumberland Championships take place in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne - there is also a Newcastle-Under-Lyme in Staffordshire, a Newcastle in Northern Ireland and another in Australia and Leamington is Leamington Spa

* Significant error/query

1890 Surbiton – Alice Arbuthnot (typo)
Cheltenham – Miss Crossley = M Crossley as in Scarborough 1889?
Scottish Championships – There is a D Patterson (tt) as in Cheltenham 1886 and a Lottie Paterson (t) as in Whitehouse 1890
Beckenham – Howes = N Howes as in Beckenham 1888?
Scarborough – M Crossley (typo in final)
Felixstowe – entered twice
Exmouth – Kindersley = Georgina Kindersley?
Scarborough – D Boulton = Dorothy Boulton?
Liverpool and Scarborough– examples of defending champion not defending???
1891 West/East of Scotland – Moir = L Moir?
Mark omissions – I notice lots of results from Mark are not added to the front/first page from here on in so I wont list all of them but its better to have the fullest draws possible on the first page I think
Cheltenham – Miss Stretton = K Stretton?
Cheltenham – Miss Crossley = M Crossley?
Manchester – Miss Blencowe – E Blencowe?
1892 Cheltenham – Miss Stretton = K Stretton?
Sheffield – Miss Kersey = Winifred Kersey?
Buxton – Miss Friend = Mary Friend? Miss Vicars = A Vicars?
Hull – Miss Hodgson = C Hodgson?
Eastbourne – Tootell = E Tootell?
*Eastbourne – F – Bertha Steedman d Edith Austin???
Mark omissions
*Newcastle – Echoing Jimbo here – was it Jane or Helen who won??
1893 Mark omissions
Exmouth – Bryan = C Bryan?
Eastbourne – Mary Friend?
Ilkley – Katherine Grey?
1894 Leamington – Agatha Templeman? N Bloxsome?
Irish Championships – would that be Florence Snook?
Liverpool – Mary Friend?
Buxton – A Vicars?-K Lynch?
Wimbledon – C Bryan? – L Chatterton Clarke?
1895 Mark omissions

re: 1899 results

For me, the French only started in 1925 when it became open to foreign players. Before that, it only shows who were the best French players of the times, and they weren't the best players in the world.

As for the challenge thing, well, that was so long time ago. From results of many French events, we could see that Adine Masson deserved to be rewarded, if only for regular victories in the country. But that's it. The best French players weren't better than the German ones, or the Russian ones, or the Aussie ones... the best players were in the UK since the start, in competition with the US since 1900 (the famous Sutton-Chambers rivalry), and we will never know about the isolated case of Rose Payten (Australia). Then came Suzanne after WW1.

It's impossible that a Championships of Geneva is held in Montreux, as the two towns are very far off (circa 80/90 km.)
Later in Montreux was held the Lake Geneva (aka Lake Leman) Championships. I think this is the exact denomination for your entry...

I have never heard about this event before.
Was it really played on grass that early in the season in a "House"?

Was this event played in other years as well?

At a house I should imagine. Sheen House is probably an estate, and there would be grass courts on the grounds.

From the internet:

"Sheen House, Sheen Lane
In 1848 this mansion was placed by the owner, a Mr Bates, at the disposal of the exiled royal family. It was used by Louis Philippe’s son ,the Duc de Nemours, and his children... The Comte de Paris, who had to leave France because of the marriage of his daughter, Marie Amelie, to the Duke of Braganza, leased the house from 1886-1892. Sheen House was demolished in 1907; its estate covered the area of East Sheen from Vicarage Road to Upper Richmond Road West."

Sheen Lane is situated quite close to Kew Gardens and the National Archives in Richmond, and not very far from the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton. Barnes, Chiswick and other places in west London associated with lawn tennis are also located nearby.
