- Mary Christiana's husband, Jesse Last, was a builder by trade. This family was fairly well-to-do at one time and lived in quite a large home. Jesse Last was a great violinist and apparently the children drew their musical talent from him. Jesse also taught George Thomas' father to play the violin. By the 1930s, through correspondence between Roy Lumb's mother and the Lasts, it was reported that the family fortunes were "going downhill".
Of the children, Ethyl was a music teacher. She married three times, all soldiers and had a child by each husband. The fourth time Ethyl married she had two children. Her last husband committed suicide.
Christina, later known as "Chrissie", was a girlhood friend of her cousin Winifred (Roy Lumb's mother). She was still living in 1972 and was marked as being 73 years old on February 14.
Winifred died when she was just 14 and nothing is known of Sydney. Jesse was very musical and George was the youngest child.
Jesse and family moved first to Westgate, Thanet and owned a brickfield there. Sometime later, the family moved to "Mhow", All Saints Road, Margate, Kent.
