Thanks Mark, I have added the results to those tournaments already present.

About Simone Lafaurie I think she was Sylvia Jung Lafaurie. Don't you think?
Sometimes a Simone Lafaurie played the Mixed with R.Lafaurie, and Raoul Lafaurie was the Sylvia's husband, so I think that Simone was a wrong name.

Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

Middlesex Championships, Chiswick Park, London

Inaugurated in 1884, the Chiswick Park meeting was for decades one of the most popular tournaments in the British lawn tennis calendar. The first Chiswick Park tournament began in late July and ended in late August. It was described as follows in "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1885): “The new Chiswick Park Cricket and Lawn Tennis Club grounds, although only opened a very short time ago, had been found to be in such fine order for playing that it was at once resolved to hold a tournament. The notice was, of course, very short, but, notwithstanding this, the committee must be congratulated on the entries that they received.

“The prize list for each competition was of very liberal proportions for a first tournament – first, second and third prizes being offered for Gentlemen’s Singles, Ladies Singles and the Local Championship, and first and second prizes for Gentlemen’s Doubles and Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Doubles. In addition to these competitions, there were also prizes for the club championships, both ladies and gentlemen. [...] Nine entered for the Ladies’ Singles, Miss Blanche Bingley and Miss Bourchier being the best.

“The grounds round the lawn tennis courts – of which any number can be made – are most tastefully laid out, and a very well-arranged pavilion gives the competitors every comfort that could be wished for.

“Miss Blanche Bingley very easily won her matches, with the exception of the one against Miss Bourchier, who played extremely well against her.

“This tournament was brought to a close on Saturday last in most beautiful weather. The attendance was much larger than on any of the previous days, and the spectators were well rewarded for coming, as some fine play was seen in more than one of the matches. [...] The committee are decidedly to be congratulated on the success of their first effort, and the tournament will, without doubt, take a leading position amongst the metropolitan meetings.”

The second edition of the tournament, held in 1885, was as popular as the first, if not more so. The following extracts, taken from "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1886), provide more insight into this nascent tournament: "The enterprise of the directors of the Chiswick Park Company has placed at the disposal of the inhabitants of the Western and South-Western suburbs of London one of the most charming lawn tennis grounds to be met with in the kingdom.

"Originally the park ground, studded here and there with well-grown trees, the place now assumes as pleasant though a different appearance. The undulating turf has been carefully levelled and relaid, pavilions have been erected, flowerbeds formed, shrubs planted, etc., with the result that, both for cricket and lawn tennis, the Chiswick Park grounds offer advantages not to be met with in any other district within twenty miles of London.

"The arrangements were excellent throughout the meeting, both players and spectators expressing great pleasure thereat. The courts were in excellent trim. On Saturday the proceedings were enlivened by the strains of the local volunteer band, and, at the conclusion of the the play, the prizes were presented by Lady Curtis, who accompanied each presentation with some suitable compliments."

In 1887, challenge cups were presented for the men's and women's singles events at the Chiswick Park tournament. This meant that a Challenge Round was in force from 1888 until the early 1900's. It was also from this point onwards that the tournament became known as the Middlesex Championships.

The continued success of the tournament was somewhat endangered around the beginning of the 1890's, possibly because of its position in the calendar, but in 1893, it was moved up the calendar, from July to late May/early June, a position that increased its popularity and ensured its survival for nearly five decades.

The tournament was not held during World War One and was postponed again in 1939 following the outbreak of World War Two. Unfortunately, it was not held again after the end of the latter war. It appears that the management committee had attempted to reduce ticket prices to guarantee the tournament's continued existence, but a compulsory purchase order meant that there was no possibility of this once great tournament ever being held again.

An asterisk (*) indicates that the holder did not defend her title, so there was no Challenge Round in that particular year, the winner of the All-Comers' Final becoming the new champion. [HO] means that the women's singles event in a particular year was handicap only.
