Re: The Official Married Names Thread
AGNETA MAUD TABOR [---> Recheck first name]
Born 10 May 1862
Died 8 October 1933
Married Henry Hawley Shaw, 3 January 1893
Agneta Tabor played in the women's singles event at Wimbledon in 1886 when the event in question was only three years old. She reached the All-Comers' Final before losing to Blanche Bingley, who went on to win the title for the first time.
Two of Agneta's brothers, George and Arthur, played in the Wimbledon singles event in the years 1878-80. They were three of the children of the Reverend Robert Stammers Tabor, a graduate of Cambridge University, England, and his first wife, Mary Dolman.
Agneta played little competitive lawn tennis, most likely because at that time it was thought unseemly for a lady to take part in competitive sports.
