Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

ok-need to start next with Janet Kemp (#755)

found info for others before her, including Margaret M Lee, whose entry reads:

LEE, MARGARET (Margaret M Lee)
United Kingdom
Married John O Kennedy September 1968 in Frome, Somerset
Active 1961-1968

Played Wimbledon from 1961 to 1965 and in 1967-1968. Her overall Wimbledon singles record was 5-7.

She made the 3R of Wimbledon in 1964 and slow-balled Billie Jean Moffitt to 3 sets, going down 3-6 6-4 6-2. The NYT called her “a London typist.”

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Found approximate dates of mariage and birth for Sue Tutt

TUTT, “SUE” (Susan M Tutt)
United Kingdom
Born April to June of 1943 in Leicester
Married Philip J. Northen, July to September of 1969, in Leicester
[Active 1965-70]

Entered Wimbledon from 1965 through 1970-doubles only in 1967. Her record at Wimbledon was 2-4. In 1970 she platyed as Mrs Northen.

Won perhaps the shortest completed match in tennis history. It lasted just 20 minutes, when Tutt beat Marion Bandy 6-0, 6-0 at the Wimbledon tournament in 1969

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Your find with D Allen (later Mts Harding) led me on one wild ride Jimbo!

After a good deal of dectective work I found out the following:


ALLEN, AGNES (Agnes Dorothy Allen)
United Kingdom
Born 02 December 1886 in Auton, Middlesex.
Died September 1976 at Chichester.
Married (1) Reginald William Fowler Harding (1887-1917) on 23 February 1913 in Ealing.
Married (2) Captian Patrick Hill Normand (died 27 March 1943) Between July 1920 and 1926


Called “a spinster of the parish” in her wedding bann of 1913, she had played Wimbledon in 1912 as Miss Allen.
Played Wimbledon 3 times (1912, 1914, and 1920), compiling a 3-4 record. In 1914 and 1920 she made the 3R as Mrs RWF Harding.

Captain Reginald William Fowler Harding, London Regiment,was the third son of Mr. & Mrs. Richmond Harding of Cranmore, Isleworth. He was born in 1887 and educated at St. Pauls, where he developed a very great athletic ability. He represented his School at Cricket and Football and was the champion fives player.

In 1910 he became a member of the Stock Exchange. It was then that he became a first class Lawn Tennis player. He was the champion of the Chiswick Park Lawn Tennis Club and played in many open tournaments. In 1914 he was playing splendidly and reached the final for the plate at Wimbledon.

He was given a commission in the 18th Battalion, London Regiment (London Irish Rifles) in August 1914, and was promoted to Captain in May of the next year. Reginald served in France, Salonica, Egypt and Palestine.He was mortally wounded at Tel el Sheria (now Israel) on the morning of the 7 November 1917.

Her second husband was a Scotsman. A brief bio of her first husband calls her Agnes Dorothy Norman “of Johannesburg.” Mr Normand (the earlier reference omitted the “d”) was a Captain and a noted cricket player. There are numerous ship passenger lists with Mrs Normand, ranging from South Africa to England and even as far as Burma. The family eventually returned to the United Kingdom. As yet there is no indication of Dorothy playing tennis after after 1920. She had a son named PI Normand who was born circa 1927.

Good catch, Rollo!

But I indicate you that 2 times you have written her first husband's surname Harley, instead of Harding.
I underline in bold type those mistakes.
