Not a star player, but a significant figure in the game.

Sophie Florence Lothrop SHERIDAN (Lady WAVERTREE)
Born: 19 September 1873, Long Bredy, Dorset, ENGLAND
Died: 27 November 1952 (aged 79)

married:
1) 1896: William Hall WALKER (1st Baron WAVERTREE of Delamere) (25 Dec 1856 - 2 Feb 1933) on 29 September
- - she was known as Baroness Sophie Florence WAVERTREE or The Lady Wavertree from 27 October 1919
2) 1947: Francis MB FISHER (NZL) former international player - aged 69 - on 10 August

Over 20 years after she had partnered him in mixed doubles, while married to her first husband, Lady Waverley wed Francis Fisher in Sydney in 1947.

In 1921, Lady Wavertree had offered a cup for a women's international tennis competition but this was refused by the LTA (Britain). Her legendary post-Wimbledon parties, which usually followed a charity tournaments, were known as 'Little Wimbledons'.

A great friend of stars such as Suzanne Lenglen, Wavertree was in a carriage with Henri Cochet and his mother in France in 1927, when they were shot at by a masked man.

In Sydney, in 1938, Lady Wavertree recalled the star players and her favourite memories. "I will never forget the occasion in the Frech junior championships where (Simone Mathieu) wheeled her baby on to the court and left its pram near the sidelines. The idea of a married woman playing in the junior championships had particular appeal to me."

William Hall Walker, Baron Wavertree, was a Conservative politician with a huge art collection and stable of champion race-horses. Friends with Kings and the Aga Khan, he had gained his peerage in 1919 after earlier selling his horse-studs and bloodstock to the British Nation with a view to improving cavalry horses used in World War I. His Tully stud, with Japanese gardens co-created by Lady Wavertree, is today the home of the Irish National Stud and a major tourist attraction.

Great info on on Lady Wavertree. So she married FMB. According to Ted Tinling they were lovers, at least around the time of the great Lenglen-Wills match at Cannes in 1926.

Austinrunner is entirely correct about Catt. She's a Deidre and not a Diedre. I've probably got this wrong in the Wimbledon results, as John Barrett had her name incorrectly.

No additional info on Tapscott Mark-I've got exactly what you have.

This needs added info.

I'll have to read his stuff one of these days!

Yes, I think the Cannes match had the prize of the 'Lady Wavertree Cup'. Not sure if this is the same cup she had offered for an international women's competition around 1918 or another trophy.

She was quoted as saying (about her offer) that the British LTA were not interested in an international team contest and especially not a Cup named after a person. She said she did not want naming rights, just to have a competition established.

A year after her proposal, the US offered the British LTA the Wightman Cup as a US/British contest and the LTA accepted (according to Wavertree 'to avoid offence' to the Americans).

Re: The Official Married Names Thread

Clara Antonie Kusenberg
Germany
Born 24 July 1874
Died 2 October 1951
Married (1) Oskar Heinrich Hartwig, Count von der Schulenburg, 1895, divorced 1906
Married (2) Viktor Felix Eugen, Count von Voss, 1928

This is the elusive Countess Clara von der Schulenburg, who married two counts, but seems to have continued to be known as Countess von der Schulenburg, at least until her marriage to Count Voss. A native of Dusseldorf, she died in Berlin.

Count Viktor Voss was one of the best of the earliest German lawn tennis players, but at least a class or two below the English Doherty brothers in terms of talent. The same could be said of Clara von der Schulenburg.

There is need to check.

This 1912 yearbook lists both Irving Murphy and Ethelyn Legendre as members of a Tulane University sorority, so it's probable that Murphy wasn't married:

But a marriage detail here:

Ethelyn LEGENDRE (USA)
Born circa 1893/4 (28yo at 13 May 1922)

Re: The Official Married Names Thread

Margarita Evelyn "Margot" Lumb
United Kingdom
Born 1912
Died
Married Major William Gordon MBE, MC, Royal Signals, 27 November 1944

This player might originally have been called Margot to distinguish her from her mother, who was a Margarita Johnson and had been born in Havana, Cuba, in 1879. Margot's father, Charles, was Anglo-Indian, having been born in Madras in 1872.

Margot Lumb played squash as well as tennis, and excelled at the former sport, winning the singles title at the British Open every year from 1935-39.

These are the same person btw. The most correct details I have are:

Married Edmund Shelley BARKER in Perth on 4 September 1895

She was the daughter of Lt. George Austin Woods (1825-1905), a surveyor in the Royal Navy who, among other things, had ruled Fiji as premier from 1872-74.

but "Spalding's annual for 1922" on page 135, about Pelham Country Club Tournament 1921, writes that "The honors fell to Mrs B.Cole of Boston, formerly Miss Anna Sheafe..."
So.... Nancy or Anna Sheafe? Or both names for the same woman?

Originally posted by Rollo:

And to add to the confusion we have the New York Times, which states that Mrs Benjamin E Cole II (of Longwood, MS) was the former Ann Sheafe.

The "E" Stands for Edward.

Our Benjamin Edward Cole II was born born 20 March 1891. His parents Edward Benjamin Cole and Adeline Philbrick Dodge) wed 7 June 1887. The Coles owned a shoe manufacturing firm called B. E. Cole and Company. Adeline dodge Cole died in 1959 and is buried in the Dodge family cemetary in Wenham, Mass.

Could we possibly be dealing with a Nancy Ann (or Anne, Anna) Sheafe who went by her middle name?

The Grand Slam results section for 1921 has Ann Sheafe Cole. I can double check where I got this from-usually these results came from copies of American Lawn Tennis, which often gave a married woman's maiden name.

So using Jimbo's info we have a marriage date anywhere from 1915 to 1917.

The NYT last mentions a single Ann Sheafe on October 4 1915.

Using the LOC. gov site I came across a New York Tribune article from 1921 that calls her the former Anne Sheafe of North Andover.

Originally posted by Rollo:

More digging on Mrs Benjamin Edward Cole II


Her full name was Ann Wentworth Cole.

*Sources that add an "e" thus appear to be incorrect. Jimbo found one instance where she was called "Nancy"-I found another in an article from the 1931 American lawn Tennis. Perhaps Nancy was a nickname.

The 1920 and 1930 census state her father was born in Massachusetts-her mother was born in France.
Her father was Edwin Sheafe (6 April 1862-5 November 1924), best known for being President of Longwood Cricket Club from 1902-1924. His wife Harriet survived him and became the first female honaorary member of the club.

The 1930 census lists her age as 36-a birth date of circa 1894.

Children listed in 1930 include:

Ann (c 1917)
Harriott (Born 25 April, 1919 in North Andover according to her obit)

http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...usetts&ct=clnk

Sarah circa 1923
Benjamin circa 1924
Eleanor circa 1926.

Her husband Benjamin Cole died in Florida on 28 February 1974 (Social Security Death index).

Records appear to indicate a divorce in Dade, County Florida in 1948 between a Benjamin E Cole and his spouse Ann-it is likely this couple is one and the same.

Jack Hauck may have more infomation, as he wrote a book on Adeline Philbrick Dodge Cole, who was a very active personage locally in Wenham.

In the early of past century, in Longwood was played a tournament just named to Ann Sheafe's father, the "Edwin Sheafe Cup".

In the thread "1907 results" I had added the result some weeks ago, without know that detail. Evelyn Sears won, and the Annual writes that she won in 1905 too.

Cornelia Roosevelt Scovel
United States/Italy
Born circa 1880
Died
Married Count Arturo Fabbricotti, 25 November 1903

From "Lawn Tennis and Croquet", 28 May 1903: "Among the competitors at the Florence tournament there were several with the title Conte, Contessina and Marchese... The winner of the ladies' singles was found in Miss Ranner, who in the final beat Miss Cornelia Roosevelt Scovel, a lady of American extraction, as our readers will perhaps guess."

Re: The Official Married Names Thread

Marie-Louise de Pfeffel
France
Born 15 August 1882
Died 29 November 1944
Married Stanley F. Williams, 24 January 1906

Marie-Louise was the sister of Yvonne de Pfeffel, who also played lawn tennis in the first decade of the twentieth century.

Their German-born father was Christian Hubert Freiherr von Pfeffel, a "freiherr" being a baron. He moved to France at some point and died in Paris. Marie-Louise and Yvonne could probably have styled themselves as baronesses. Their mother, Hélène (née Arnous-Rivière), appears to have been French.

Katherine Madeline Pillans
United Kingdom
Born circa 1869
Died 6 November 1965
Married Thomas Paine Hilder, 17 October 1905

Katherine was the sister of Helen Margaret Pillans, the H.M. Pillans who played in some of the tournaments on the French Riviera at the beginning of the twentieth century. Katherine played in some of them too, but with less success than Helen, who was a year or so younger than her. They were both from Chiselhurst in Kent. Helen appears not to have married.
