Her maiden name is Knight or Kitchen? You have written both.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Some time ago there was slightly different info in the bio no 2372:

Biographies of Female Tennis Players

Hargreaves, Marion Gallie
United Kingdom
Born 11 June 1905 in Southport, Lancashire
Died in 1961 in Lancashire
Did not marry. Marion Hargreaves was the daughter of James Hargreaves, an auditor, and Marion Hargreaves, both of whom were also natives of Lancashire.

Ok-will double check this. I suspect the main reason was we know the tennis player Miss Hargreaves wed a Mr James.


Why has it been removed ? Were two different (?) players merged by mistake, or we couldn't prove the DOB etc. (One is Manon, and the second one Marion) ?

UPDATE

FOURIE,MARIE

Could this be the Marie Fourie born 19th July 1939 who sailed from Southampton to Cape Town on 8th September and was described as a typist?
