Re: FIRST NAMES - Help Needed

In 1881, the nascent Darlington tournament had an interesting draw in that it featured three sisters from the Fenwick family of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in Northumberland: May (probably christened Julia Margaret; b. 1851), Winifred (b. 1856) and Alice (b. 1858).

The sisters were three of the dozen or so children (six boys and six girls) of Henry William Fenwick and Charlotte Fenwick. Mr Fenwick appears to have come from a long line of distinguished lawmen and was himself a solicitor. At least four of his sons also played tournament tennis: Percival (b. 1860), William (b. 1862), Minden (b. 1864) and Mark (born?).

In the 1880's, some of the Fenwicks emigrated to New Zealand, where they continued to take part in tennis tournaments. Percival Fenwick won the New Zealand Championships in 1886, 1887 and 1888; Minden won it in 1889. The brothers excelled more at lawn tennis than did the sisters.

Re: FIRST NAMES - Help Needed

The Langleys were the sons and daughters of Henry Langley, of Portarlington in Ireland, and his wife Harriet, who had been born in Naples, Italy. There were at least seven Langley children, four girls and three boys.

The girls were Augusta (b. 1858 in Koblenz, Germany), Flora (b. 1860), Constance Laura Mary (b. 1862) and Marion (b. 1866). The three youngest daughters were all born in London, England.

Constance was easily the best player of the four daughters. She later married fellow player Charles J. Smith and thereafter was known as “Mrs C.J. Smith”.

Re: FIRST NAMES - Help Needed

The player who took part in some lawn tennis tournaments in the early 1880's under the name of Mrs Bagnall-Wild was Alice Pfeil (b. 1851), a native of London. She married fellow tennis-player Ralph Bagnall-Wild in 1871. Her husband was also involved in the administration side of things during the early years of lawn tennis.

Great finds Mark! I am an admirer of Mr Gillmeister's work-his book the Cultural History of Tennis is one of the few comprehensive works on the early game.

Re: FIRST NAMES - Help Needed

A note on the English Snook family, the children of which were born in Nottinghamshire, although the parents James and Frances were from Dorsetshire and Wiltshire respectively. They produced at least nine children, four boys and five girls. Information on the tennis-playing sons Frederick, Herbert and Walter can be found here: http://www.tennisarchives.com/zoekcoureurvrij2.php

There is little doubt that at least three of the daughters also took part in lawn tennis tournaments in the British Isles. However, because of poor record-keeping it is sometimes quite difficult to say which daughter played where and when. The following are the known daugthers' names:

Arundel Backer (b. 1861)

Jane Mary (b. 1862)

Charlotte B. (b. 1866)

Frances Ellen May (b. 1871)

Mabel Louise (b. 1873)
--

There might have been one or two more siblings.

Re: FIRST NAMES - Help Needed

I might be wrong, but I do believe that Virginia Wade was born Sarah Virginia Wade. Also, do the fllowing have any middle names? Margaret Court, Evonne Goolagong, Martina Navratilova? I know Chris Evert's is Marie.

You're right about Virginia Wade, who always featured as "Miss S.V. Wade" on the old Wimbledon scoreboard. I'm sure some, if not all, of the other three players have a middle name, or middle names, but I don't know what they are.

Are you sure that Larissa and Elena are sisters? There are 24 years between them, and their mother would have had Elena when was 48.
Besides, Granaturova already appears in 1971 with this surname in our yearly threads. Was she already married at 18?
