Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event
Re: The Kent Championships. Here are some player's first names and family names, with the first year of their appearance given first; also one or two missing scores:
1888 Miss Gurney -> Edith Gurney
1890 Maude Shackle -> I believe her first name was spelt "Maud"
1893 Miss P. Legh -> Ruth Pennington-Legh
1894 A. Wilson -> Amy Wilson
1905 Connie Wilson d. Alice Greene 6-2, 6-4 (Due to bad weather at Beckenham, this match was played at Wimbledon on June 27.)
1909 Dora Boothby d. Agnes Morton 6-4, 6-4 (Due to bad weather, this final was not played at Beckenham.)
1912 Mrs Winifreid McNair -> This should be Winifred McNair (there is no need for the "Mrs" once a married player's first name is known.)
1920 Elizabeth Ryan/Mrs. McNair 7-9 3-2 divided -> Winifred McNair again. I'd say: "Due to bad weather, the final could not be completed. Elizabeth Ryan and Winifred McNair divided the first prize."
