Re: The Official Married Names Thread

Hi Mark-

Also found this-she appears to be a sister of the Agneta mentioned above.

http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com.../UHP-0355.html

Helen Amy Tabor (daughter of ROBERT STAMMERS TABOR and MARY DOLLMAN) was born 23 December 1863, and died 16 September 1946.

Notes for Helen Amy Tabor:
Funeral of Arthur Sidney Tabor. "The chief mourners were... Mrs Rowe and Miss Amy Tabor (sisters) (The Times, 19 October 1927)

More About Helen Amy Tabor:
Fact 1: Wimbledon Ladies Finalist, 1886.

I'll double check Barrett's this evening to see if he provides initials.

Re: The Official Married Names Thread

I found Mrs Brame Hillyard. With the initials of B Hillard is it easy to view her as Blanche Hillyard, but this is not the case.

Agnes Florence Richards
United Kingdom
Married Brame Hillyard (1876-1959) 7 Feb 1922 - Harrogate, Christchurch, West Yorkshire.

Her father’s name was Charles Edward Richards
Active on the Riviera in 1922 with her husband. Her husband Brame was the first man to wear shorts at Wimbledon in 1930. Was Brame related to George? I have found no evidence for it so far. It was his second marriage-while Agnes is described as a spinster on the marriage register.

Re: The Official Married Names Thread

SCHOMBURGK, TONI (nee Toni Mettenheimer)
Germany
Born 1898
Died 1980
Married to Heinrich Georg Schomburgk (June 30, 1885 – March 29, 1965) in February 1920

She was from Königstein-marrying the well known star Heinrich Schomburgk from Dredsden. The pair were based out of Leipzig until 1949, when the returned to Toni hometown of Königstein, where Toni started a tennis school.

Her name sometimes rendered as Tony, but Toni is more correct.

Heinrich Schomburgk has a photo album currently residing in the Stadtgeschichtliches Museum Leipzig. It’s called Mein Sport und Bild. He won a gold medal in the 1912 Olympic Mixed event with Koring. Toni won the 1922 German mixed event with her husband.

It must be in the compilation list of women finalists (there are some additional ladies listed after the semifinalists as well, who reached the final before 1921)

Hi, Karoly,

The source for the information I posted above on Agneta Tabor is Alan Little's "Wimbledon Compendium" (2010 edition). However, a distant relative of the Tabors told me that (Helen) Amy, one of Agneta's sisters, was the one who reached the All-Comers' Final of the singles event at Wimbledon in 1886.

I'm still in the process of trying to verify all of this. Helen Amy was known to family and friends as Amy.

Mark

Re: The Official Married Names Thread

Agneta and (Helen) Amy Tabor were two of the ten surviving children (five boys and five girls) of Robert and Mary Tabor. Robert was for many years headmaster of Cheam School in what is now the London borough of Sutton.

According to the book "Cheam School from 1645", by Edward Peel, "Whether [Robert] Tabor was himself an athlete we do not know, but he certainly had athletic children. Monty and Arthur played cricket for Eton, and Arthur, who was also a runner, a footballer, a fives player and a golfer, opened the batting for Cambridge in three successive years and later played for Middlesex and Surrey. Alfred was in the Harrow XI for both football and cricket, and also played cricket for Middlesex.

"The youngest daughter, Amy, who so narrowly escapted death [from measles, mumps or whooping cough] in 1866, was a ladies' singles finalist at Wimbledon and might have gone on to higher things, but was not allowed to compete a second time because of the undesirable publicity!"

Great digging on this Mark. Pity she only competed once.

Re: The Official Married Names Thread

Your entry:

LILIAN KELAIDIS
Switzerland
Born 23 May 196
Died
Married Dreschner

-----------------
First of all: year of birth is 1965.
Name "Dreschner" should be "Drescher".

Most importantly: I am convinced that the names have been switched.
Note that in many European countries (including my own) married name is mentioned first, followed by maiden name.
She played as Drescher from 1980 (age 15! probably not married) until 1987.
I think Kelaidis is her husband's name. Currently she is active for a Swiss business firm called Kamata AG, inscribed in the "Handelsregister" as being from the town of Glyfada (Greece), which is consistent with "Kelaidis" having the look of being a Greek name.

Therefore my guess is:
LILIAN DRESCHER
Switzerland
Born 23 May 1965
Married Kelaidis

Hi Vinkje. You are correct. I will try and track down more tonight when I can get to my tennis annuals.

Her page at the Tennis Hall of Fame

specifies:
Born 2 December 1916

In addition I found a document at the Australian Memoirs Foundation:

also specifying 2 December 1916 as birth date.

Re: The Official Married Names Thread

I came up short with Drescher. I can only confirm that she was still single (as Lilian Drescher) in 1987. She dropped off the tour in early 1988.

I found this article while confirming the spelling for Lidy Venneboer. My Dutch is non-existent, but the article seems to suggest that Jansen was just part of her family name and she married a German named Kirsch circa 1971.

Am I correct or off on Lidy?

Re: The Official Married Names Thread

To Rollo and Vinkje:

The mistake about Lilian Drescher married Kelaidis was mine. In the post #285 I have switched the names and badly written Dreschner. I am sorry!!
