Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

The three Marriots sisters took part in a small number of tennis tournaments in the early 1890s. The most succesful of them, May, won the singles title at the Derbyshire Championships in Buxton in 1891 and, together with her elder sister Louisa, the All England Doubles title at the same tournament in the same year. They did not build on this initial success, their names rarely appearing in draws after 1891.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

The following two sisters appear together in several draws at tournaments held in the 1890s. After her marriage, Amy (Wilson) Kirby moved to South Africa with her husband; she won the singles title at the South African Championships in 1904-07, 1910 and 1912.

The L. Wilson who appears in a number of singles draws alongside Amy and Georgina Wilson does not appear to have been related to them.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Sometimes it is very difficult to find exact information about some of the most successful of the early lawn tennis players. A case in point in Margaret Bracewell, who took part in a large number of tournaments in the mid-to-late 1880s. According to some reports, Margaret Bracewell came from, or at one point at least lived in, Southport on the north-west coast of England, where she was a member of the local lawn tennis club.

The player in question had at least one sister, usually referred to as "Miss G. Bracewell", who also took part in lawn tennis tournaments, usually at the same time as Margaret with whom she appears in several draws. It is possible that Margaret was actually the latter player's second name, but, as sometimes happens, that she had become known by that name, like other players such as (Edith) Maud Shackle and (Florence) Angela Mortimer.

The early Censuses of England and Wales contain biographical information on a Bracewell family with several children, including two daughters, Emily Margaret and Gertrude Mary. These two girls were the daughters of Edmund Bracewell, a cotton manufacturer, and his wife Jane, and were born six years apart, in Gargrave in Yorkshire. (The Bracewell sisters took part in tournaments in several of the Yorkshire tournaments during their lawn tennis careers.)

Both sisters latter married, (Emily) Margaret’s husband being a George Moore. Their marriage was registered in early 1890 in Newton Abbot in Devon, south-west England. (Interestingly, Margaret Bracewell did not take part in any lawn tennis tournaments after the year 1889.) Furthermore, it is clear that Gertrude Bracewell was the younger of the two sisters because she appeared on the lawn tennis scene after Margaret. Lastly, there is evidence of a Mrs G. Moore taking part in one or two tournaments many years later.

Bracewell, Emily Margaret
United Kingdom
Born 1861 in Gargrave, Yorkshire, England
Died 14 May 1940 in Bognor Regis, Sussex, England

Married George Moore in 1890 in Newton Abbotk, Devon, England
--

Bracewell, Gertrude Mary
United Kingdom
Born 1867 in Gargrave, Yorkshire, England
Died 25 February 1949 in Bognor Regis, Sussex, England

Did not marry. Probate was granted to Barclays Bank and Wilfred L. Hollick, retired stockbroker and retired tennis player, husband of Ada Margaret (Spencer), herself a former tennis player who appears in several draws as "Mrs W.L. Hollick".
