About

Although born in Dublin, Ireland, Charles Tuckey attended school and university in England, where he settled and worked. He later became a distinguished mathematician and teacher of mathematics at Charterhouse School in the English market town of Godalming, in Surrey, where the Tuckey family had their own grass lawn tennis court.

Charles Tuckey married fellow lawn tennis player Agnes Katherine Raymond Daniell (1877-1972) on 17 April 1906 in Ilfracombe, Devon. Two of their children also became top lawn tennis players: Charles Davis Raymond Tuckey (known as Raymond) and Kathleen Lilian Agnes Tuckey (known as Kay; 1921-2016).

Agnes Tuckey won the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon in 1913 with Hope Crisp, while her son Raymond Tuckey won the men’s doubles title at Wimbledon in 1936 with Pat Hughes. They are the only mother and son in tennis history to have won a title at one of the four major championships.
