Interesting. It appears that the Boadle sisters' father might have been Irish or of Irish origin. I wasn't aware that any of the sisters had married, but it appears that they all had!

The information on the Comtesse de Kermel and Mlle d'Elva is already included in the Original Married Names thread. The latter's husband was not a baron at the time of their marriage.

I found a note about their great-grandfather on another messageboard.

"Thomas Charles Whitfield born Kilkenny, Ireland to Buenos Aires, Argentina

Posted: 14 Jul 2002 5:51PM

Classification: Query

Thomas was born 1794 in Kilkenny, then became a guard for Napoleon around 1819, then he emigrated to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and became an apothecary!"

Interesting story.

Yes, I see. The sisters' father was actually a native of Cheshire in England.

Re: FIRST NAMES - Help Needed

Apparently Mr Boadle's work took him to Argentina. He came to Argentina in 1878 as an employee of the Holton Shipping Company.

Some more first names of early players:

Helen and Winifred Kersey were two tennis-playing sisters from Cosford in the English county of Suffolk. Their brother, Henry Maitland Kersey (b. 1859), also played some tournament tennis.

Re: FIRST NAMES - Help Needed

Annie Jane Layard

In 1881, an A. Layard was runner-up to Grace Gibbs in the women's singles event at the inaugural West of England Championships tournament in Bath.

According to the 1871 Census of England, Annie Jane Layard was born in Wembley, London, in 1859. Her parent were Charles and Sarah; the former was a native of Bath. One of Annie's siblings, George (Soames) Layard, was born in Clifton, Bristol (a future venue for the West of England Championships), in 1861. George's name also features in the lists for some early lawn tennis tournaments.

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.
