Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

Some information on two early South African players, who were in fact mother and daughter, and had a lot of success at the South African Championships:

Norah Hickman won the singles title at the South African Championships in 1897, 1898 and 1899. At some point in the early 1900s she married a Roland Miller, and was runner-up at the same tournament in 1907 as Norah Hickman Miller.

In 1906, Norah Hickman Miller had given birth to a daughter, Winifred Norah Miller, who in turn was runner-up in the singles event at the South African Championships five times, twice under her maiden (1929 and 1931) and three times under married name, which was Winifred Miller Lowe (1932, 1933 and 1934). Winifred had earlier married a Frederick Hardwicke Lowe.
