LEGH, RUTH (Ruth Isabel Pennington-Legh)
United Kingdom
Born 1871
Died 1952
Married Edward Bluett Winch, 9 February 1899

This is the "Miss P. Legh", who played under both her maiden and married names, becoming Ruth Winch after her marriage. Pennington was not her first name. Herbert Chipp mentions her as "Miss Pennington Legh" in his "Lawn Tennis Recollections" (1898).

From the "Cheshire Observer", 21 January 1899: "The marriage arranged between Edward Bluett Winch, third son of George Winch, Holcombe, Chatham and Ruth Isabel Legh only daughter of the late John Pennington-Legh, Norbury Booths, Knutsford, Cheshire, and Mrs Legh, Gladwyn, Branksome Park, Bournemouth will take place quietly at one o'clock on Thursday the 9th of February at Runstall Church, Tunbridge Wells."

Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

LEHANE, “JAN” (Janice Patricia Lehane)
Australia
Born 9 July 1941 in Glenfell, NSW, Australia
Married James John O’Neill, 19 February 1966

The first top ten female to have a two-handed backhand

"Her serve was flat and no more than medium-paced, but she was instantly ready to attack her opponent's service return. She played with good concentration, determinedly covering the extra yards across the baseline that the two-handed shot imposed on her. Her double-handed backhand was not played as a solitary king-hit since her longer swinging forehand was equally as good".

Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

LEROY, GRACE (nee Grace Arnold Moore)
United States
Born 13 April 1887.
Died after 1947
Married Robert LeRoy (2 Feb 1885-7 September 1946) sometime in May of 1911.

She was the child of lawyer/stockbroker Casimer de Rham Moore, who died in 1925, and Harriet Burgess Moore.

Married in her home to Robert LeRoy (Town and Country mentions the wedding). As far as I can tell from the 1920 and 1930 census the couple were childless-and no children are mentioned in Robert's obituary. Robert and her father both went to Columbia University. Casimir was a football star at Columbia, so perhaps Grace inherited some of his athletic ability.

Grace's father left a good sum of money to her and her sister Harriet F Moore. They are mentioned together as owners of a building in October of 1947.

As of yet I have been unable to obtain a date of death for Grace.
