Re: The Official Married Names Thread
A player known only as "Mrs Norton Barry" won the singles title at the Irish Championships in 1911 and 1913 (she was runner-up in the same event at the same tournament in 1912). This player's maiden name was Adelaide Maude Wrixon-Becher; she was the daughter of Sir John Wrixon-Becher, 3rd Baronet. Adelaide married the Irish tennis player William Norton Barry, a native of Country Cork, on 1 June 1899. She was over forty when she won the singles title at the Irish Championships for the first time.
