From "Pastime", September 16, 1891: "The Transvaal Championship meeting, held at Johannesburg between August 3rd and 11th, was well attended [...] The arrangements were very bad, and there was much confusion in consequence, while the umpiring and scoring were beneath contempt.

"The courts were primitive in the extreme – a bare patch raked in the ground and simply watered and rolled – so that erratic bounds were the rule, as after a little play the surface was one mass of hollows and hillocks, diversified here and there by patches of soft dust. Anything like accurate play off the ground was out of the question, so that those who could volley had all the advantage, for the bad surface considerably favoured them.

"The weather was unfavourable, high winds, dust and dark skies being the rule. Altogether it was a most unlucky meeting, for those good players who were not out of form, were promptly laid up with cramp. In fact, the only exceptions to this great list of unfortunates were Edward Curtis, the old Oxonian, who won the gentleman's championship, and Miss Mabel Grant, who won the ladies'."

despite different dates it looks like same tournament (coincidentally the same results),

but if not the same (there was a Headingley tournament beside Ilkley in earlier years) the comment belongs more to the July tournament

This tournament sometimes preceded and sometime followed Wimbledon until 1905, when the London Championships gained a fixed place in the calendar, before Wimbledon.
Obviously both events were played parallel with the same participants, but which should be considered as the more prestigious???

Mrs AE Thompson is the married name of Florence Noon. Does this mean Miss Thompson is her sister-in-law?
Without trawling through the update posts, this comment is oddish, because no "Miss" here. There was Miss Thompson in doubles, changed here to Florence.
