About

Grainger Chaytor, as he was known, was one of three three lawn tennis-playing Chaytor brothers from the suburb of Killiney in south County Dublin. His siblings were Charles and Thomas (known as Tom). They were the children of Henry George Chaytor and Mary Anne Chaytor, who was a Grainger by birth and from whom the lawn tennis player took his middle name.

Grainger Chaytor notably reached the semi-finals of the men’s singles event at Wimbledon in 1894, when he gave the Englishman Wilfred Baddeley a walkover. Chaytor was also men’s singles champion of Switzerland as late as 1904, when he had more or less stopped playing competitive lawn tennis, having won several dozen singles events amongst other titles.

Grainger Chaytor studied law and was later appointed King’s Counsel. Taken ill while working in the Four Courts building in central Dublin in the summer of 1913, he died soon thereafter.
