Re: FIRST NAMES - Help Needed
The Noon family produced a number of early lawn tennis players, both male and female. The Noons were natives of the county of Leicestershire; their parents were Charles and Lucy. They had six children, two sons and four daughters. Some basic biographical information on the sons, Francis (Frank) and Sidney, can be found here: http://www.tennisarchives.com/zoekcoureurvrij2.php
The four daughters were Effie (b. 1866), Florence Ethel Broughton (b. 1863), Agnes Emily (b. 1860) and Edith Lucy (b. 1858).
At least three of the Noon sisters played competitive tennis, the best of them being Agnes who enjoyed most of her success under her married name of Mrs Frederick Watts. In 1878, Agnes married Frederick, a brewer by profession and also a native of Leicester. Frederick also took part in some lawn tennis tournaments.
