Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Vera S. Dace
Born 1925 in Manchester, England
Died
Married Arthur H. Thomas, August 1947

From a newspaper report of 25 April 1947: "Miss Vera Dace, British tennis star and co-holder of the world table tennis title for women's doubles, is to marry Mr Arthur H. Thomas, a well-known Beckenham sportsman. Miss Dace, a south London [?] girl, learnt her tennis by back garden practice, and her table tennis by playing in local halls. She is a left-hander, at present competing in the Surrey Hard Court Championships.

"This tennis romance began six weeks ago when Miss Dace and Mr Thomas met at Bromley Hill Squash Club [in London]. They were introduced by Brian Phillips, one of the best squash racket players in the country."

This marriage is not true, those women are different, because at North and South Tournament 1920, in Pinehurst, Anne Townsend and Mrs Frank H. Godfrey were both in draw.
Godfrey lost in 2R and Townsend in SF.
1920 results

Also at U.S. Championships 1925 they were both in draw.
Godfrey lost in 2R and Anne Townsend in 3R.
1925 results

The only possibility remained is that Anna Townsend in Mark's post and Anne Townsend were different women.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Thanks for all of added information Mark.

I assumed the marriage date for Helen Foster Dyson was in 1929.

Thanks for information on Anna/Anne Townsend Jimbo-I'll see if I can get anymore on her from my end.

Also changed info on Beryl Bartlett (noting name should be Beryl and NOT Barbara) and Honor Woolrych (noting it should be Honor and not Heather). We have dueling birth and death dates for Honor, but I have noted them both and the sources.
