Covell and Sheherd-Barron were such close friends that they arranged to be married on the same day in a doule wedding ceremony at Bombay in September of 1921.-----Updated

UPDATE

MCNAIR,JEAN

www.tennisforum.com/25492482-post1282.html

Reference to www.ancestry.co.uk under the surname MacNair gives more details about her family but could not find her date of death.
Either incoming or outgoing sailings to the UK show her husband Oliver Gordon MacNair was born in c.1897.
They had children Ronald Malcolm born 17th January 1930, Winifred Kathleen Mary born 1934.
In January 1947 she sailed(without Oliver) from Southampton to Jamaica with Winifred and another son Terence Crawford born c. 1942.
At that time she had an address in Troon in Ayrshire.
In the Scottish electoral rolls for 1947,48 and 1949 Jean(on her own) now has an address in Queens's Drive, Cathcart , Glasgow.

Probate records show that Oliver died on 30th August 1966 and his address was 345 Albert Drive Glasgow. Mention is made in the probate records of his 2 sons Ronald and Terence and also Douglas Lambert MacNair. No mention is made of Jean.

Nice finds LKK!

I was also able to get dates of death for both ladies-who died in the US.
