About

As well as being a lawn tennis player himself, Henry Billington is related to several other English lawn tennis players. Henry’s wife, Ellen (née Hemsted; 1911-2006), and Ellen’s mother, also called Ellen (née Stawell-Brown), were both excellent players in their day.

Two of Henry and Ellen Billington’s children, Anthony and Susan Jane (known as Jane; later Mrs Anthony Henman), also took part in lawn tennis tournaments, while Tony and Jane’s youngest son, Tim, was the top male British player from circa 1995-2005.
