Born 1851 in Hambledon, Surrey, England
Died 22 February 1908 in Dorchester, Dorset, England
Married Stephen Duke in 1875 in Saint George's Church, Hanover Square, London, England
Harriet Mellersh was orphaned at a young age and more than likely adopted by her uncle and aunt, Fred and Fanny Mellersh, the parents of Gerturde Mellersh. Mr Mellersh was a banker by profession.
Harriet's husband might have died early as she was playing tennis under her maiden name in the late 1880s. She was active as a lawn tennis player in the late 1880s-early 1890s.
