I've just started researching my family tree, and appear to have come across a mystery!
My nan (Elizabeth Ann Wheatley nee Last) always seemed to think there may have been a German connection with her Dad or paternal Grandfather, as she tells me that no one ever seemed to know much about him.
I have managed to trace her father, William Robert Last (b. 1905, Cranbrook), but that is it. I cannot seem to find anything more! Not a mother's surname, or anything.
William Robert Last had one brother, Leslie, and a sister, Ethel.
If anyone can possibly help, or has any ideas, I'd be glad to know!
