    Ex: Tuckey Family (first from Charles & Agnes, then via their daughter Kay).

     

    Agnes Katherine Raymond Tuckey (née Daniell) was an English tennis player whose most notable victory came in the form of the first mixed doubles title held at Wimbledon in 1913. There she would also reach the quarterfinals on four occasions in the ladies' doubles, and twice in the ladies' singles. She would eventually marry Charles Orpen Tuckey, who also played tennis, with two of their three children, Raymond and Kay, also becoming tennis players. The former, of note, played mixed doubles with his mother Agnes, being the only such instance at Wimbledon of a mother-son duo in mixed doubles. Following Kay's death in 2016, the family collection of award medals was dispersed. This particular medal was earned for Agnes's finals victory in Surrey in 1920 over Dorothy Boadle, whom she beat in straight sets, 6-2, 6-0.
