Re: The Official Married Names Thread
Constance Laura Mary Langley
Died 27 October 1934
Married Charles John Chichester Smith, second quarter of 1880
London-born Constance Langley enjoyed a good deal of success in 1882 under her married name of "Mrs CJ Smith". She pushed Maud Watson to 7-5 in the third set in the final of the Cheltenham tournament, held in September of that year.
Constance had four sisters and at least one of them also played tennis, although who exactly this was is not clear. However, a Miss Langley was runner-up to May Langrishe in the women's singles event at the Northern Championships tournament in 1882. This was definitely a sister of Constance. Her sisters' names were Grace, Augusta, Florence and Marion.
In July 1885, Constance and one of her sisters were runners-up in the doubles at the tournament held in Darlington. In later years Constance Smith had three children, two boys and a girl, also called Constance.
