My only question is about the Bristol Cup in the early 1930's - was it still regarded as a Major then with Berlin being around in 1932 and the French Pro being around in 1930 and 1931?

If you add them to the list of Wembley, French Pro, US Pro, Tournament of Champions and Wimbledon Pro - then it still ensures that there aren't more than 4 Pro Majors in any one calendar year.
It's a very tough decision if we should count Bristol Cup 1930 and later as a major. I don't know the answer.
