Kiki- I've only gone back to 1945, post WW2:
British Women
French 1956: Mortimer reached final. Angela Buxton semi. Both lost to Gibson
French 1957: Shirley bloomer won. Ann jones lost in semi to Head Knode.
French 1963: jones reached final, trueman the semi. Both lost to turner.
Nothing since.
I'll check the other slams.
