Great find. The "Miss Coles" who appears in some British tournaments in the 1920s was Mildred Coles Davis.

Re: FIRST NAMES - Help Needed

In his most recent book, on the early decades of lawn tennis on the French Riviera, Alan Little includes a first name for Miss M. Brooksmith. However, I couldn't find any such person in any of the records (nor could a genealogist contact). The name Alan Little includes was, in fact, the most likely person's second name.

Re: FIRST NAMES - Help Needed

Apparently Miss Abercrombie's first name did not begin with "H.", but this player's identity still remains to be identified. She probably came from Cheltenham, where she was a member of the local lawn tennis club.
