Re: The Official Married Names Thread
I can add a bit to Pat
EDRICH, PAT (nee Pat Stewart)
Married John Hugh Edrich (b 21 June 1937) in 1961-divorced in July 1965.
Height: 5’ 8”
Listed as Mrs Stewart Edrich after marriage, which took place in 1961 after Wimbledon. A New York model, she wed an English cricket player.
Famous cricket player John Edrich’s first marriage was a short-lived one, to the American tennis player Pat Stewart - who, legend has it, once wrote her phone number on her tennis panties for the benefit of would-be suitors (this was presumably not during their marriage!). When the future Wimbledon champion Virginia Wade played her first singles match there, in 1962, her opponent was Mrs JH Edrich. May have used the name Edrich after her divorce.
