We don't still know the maiden name of Ethel "Toodles" , and I am uncertain because in our "1954 thread" there is, in the Doubles of South African Championship, an Eileen Prescott Watermeyer. Ethel and Eileen were the same person?
Hi Jimbo.

I may be able to help out on this when I get back from vacation. I recently got a book of the history of tennis in South Africa. It has many maiden names for married players.

Millicent Maude Fraser-Watson
South Africa
Born circa 1897
Married to Charles Kidder Pitt (1884-????) 31 March 1919 in London, St Finchley Parish.
2 children.

Daughter of Harrison Fraser Watson.

Active in the 1920s. Played Wimbledon in 1923.

She may very well by the same Millicent Pitt who was born 12 May 1896 and who died in Croyden, Surrey, England in March 1995 at age 98. I have no way of confirming this at present.

She can't be the other Millicent Pitt because Pitt wasn't her maiden name.

Not sure I follow Mark. Can we confirm that the Pitt I cited (died 1995) never married? If that's the case you are correct of course.

THELMA CAZALET
United Kingdom
Born 28 May 1899
Died 13 January 1989
Married David Keir, 3 August 1939
--

From the London "Times", 4 August 1939: "The King and Queen sent Miss Thelma Cazalet, M.P., a dessert service of Coalport china on the occasion of her marriage to Mr David Keir, which took place yesterday in the Crypt Chapel, House of Commons. Princess Beatrice sent a gilt lamp, and Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, and Major General the Earl of Athlone, gave antique Chinese ornaments.

"The French ambassador sent a crocodile-leather powder compact. The Prime Minister and Mrs Neville Chamberlain gave gilt apostle-spoons and the Speaker of the House of Commons gave a Sheraton tea-caddy. Members of the Cabinet and many Members of Parliament also sent gifts.

"The bridegroom is the son of the late Rev. Thomas Keir, of Lauder and Dumfries, and of Mrs Keir, and the bride is the daughter of the late Mr W.M. Cazalet, and of Mrs Cazalet, of Fairlawne, Tonbridge, and 33 Belgrave Square..."

The Cazalet family origins were Huguenot.

Piggybacking on Mark's find I came up with:

Myer, GOLDA
United States (California)
Born 22 December 1887
Died 10 May 1955
Married Lee Worthington Gross (1889-1969) after January 1911 and before mid 1912.

]In the 1920 census her spouse listed as Lee W Gross-with children Lee M (born January 1913) and Robert W (born circa 1916). Note that papers in 1910 refer to her as Miss Myer more often than Meyer, but both are used. Name errors in papers appear common, as the birth of her son Lee gives husband’s name as “Grose”.

An article from January 11, 1911 in the San Francisco Call indicated she was embarking on as European tour. Perhaps she wed during this tour. A Miss Myer or Mrs Gross from the US playing abroad in 1911 is likely to be her.

She had a prolific carreer span-contesting a Washington State singles final vs Gracyn Wheeler as late as 1933.
