Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

According to Alan Little, Honorary Librarian at the Kenneth Ritchie Library at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, J. Tripp was, in fact, Jessie Tripp.

I have also found some information on Jessie Tripp and M. Tripp, her tennis-playing sister (apparently there was a third tennis-playing sister, B. Tripp, but she didn't take part in many tournaments).

I'll post what I have on the Tripp sisters in the near future.

According to LKK Miss "B" Tripp participated in a few tournaments on the French Riviera in 1909, she was there together with Miss "J" Tripp (who seems to be more successful tennis player) that year.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

The three most likely candidates for the English tennis-playing Tripp sisters are the following:

Jessie Spencer Tripp
United Kingdom
Born 1879 in Cornwall, England
Died
--

Mabel Clara Tripp
United Kingdom
Born 1881 in Cornwall, England
Died 1967 in Falmouth, Cornwall, England
Married Frederick Belbin in 1901 in Bodmin, Cornwall, England; divorced or widowed?
--

Bessie Bray Tripp
United Kingdom
Born 1884 in Cornwall, England
Died 1984
Married William Henry Giles in 1904 in Bodmin, Cornwall, England
--

Jessie, Mabel and Bessie Tripp were three of the nine children of Frederick and Kate Tripp who lived in Bodmin in the county of Cornwall in south-west England towards the end of the nineteenth century. It appears that Mr Tripp was active in the oil industry.

Although Bessie Tripp did not play much lawn tennis, probably because she married in 1904, Jessie and Mabel Tripp did play a good deal, especially on the French Riviera in the years leadind up World War One.

The only contradiction in the above biographical information is Mabel's marriage to a Frederick Belbin in 1901. However, it is quite possible that this marriage did not work out or that Frederick Belbin died at a young age.

Hi Mark

Using your information I found more on Jessie Spencer Tripp using ancestry.com

born January/March of 1979, she died October-December of 1968.

She was married to a James Brewer (born circa 1877) by 1901.

I thought the Tripps were Misses up to at least 1909-or do I have my dates wrong?

In tennis draws J. Tripp was still listed as Miss in 1914, M. Tripp even longer, until 1926 !
