In 1900, the tournament as a whole was not held. In 1899, Ruth Pennington-Legh Winch won the women's singles title. In 1905, Violet Pinckney won the same title.
Thanks Mark, I have added.
But in 1898 we have a result in our yearly thread: final not played due to rain, and Charlotte Cooper and Blanche Bingley Hillyard divided the prizes.
Also the men's singles final and the mixed final were not played.
