Julius married Janet Scott Warple. He was born in Germany and emigrated to London. His children Alise Julia, Fanny Clara, George F, Arthur H, Ernest A, Edith Laura who married Thomas Wagger. in Sth Australia., Frank Christian Janet Edgar W. and maybe others. Edgar emigrated to Africa, having a son Edgar , who has the only living issue of his line, a daughter who is searching for info on her roots. It appears the Austranian family may not have any descendants?

George Theodor Lafrentz aged 9 was a pupil at Dedham, Dedham, Essex, England in 1871. I cannot locate a marriage for George or any children.

In 1891, aged 27 he was boarding in Clapham, London, England aged 66, at the time of his death he lived at The Close, Dunmow, Essex, and at Probate in London, 26 September 1929 to Emily Isabella Lafrentz widow, Effects £547 14s 1d.

Ernest Albert Lafrentz 1865-1886 born 1865 Clapham Surrey, England and died March 1886 Lambeth, London, England. There is a death record for Ernest Albert Lafrentz in January 1886, burial date of 23 March 1886 at Norwood Cemetery, Norwood Road, Lambeth, England. He was 22 years old. No marriage and no children evident

Edith Laura Lafrentz 1866 - 1956 born 4 February 1866 and died 4 September 1956 in South Australia, she married Thomas Wager Stalley in Koolunga, Burra, South Australia on the 18 November 1893, his father’s name was also Thomas Stalley (1826-1910) and his mother was Anne Tilbrook (1826-1921). Thomas Wager Stalley died on the 27th October 1900, aged 36 or 37, he is buried at North Road Cemetery, Naislworth, Prospect City, South Australia, Plot South Path 1A East-1343

Frank Christian Lafrentz 1867 -1897 born 18 April 1867 Brixton, Surrey, England and died on the 22 September 1946 a very old man, if this is the correct Frank, then he is buried at the Cimetiere Mont-Royal, Outremount, Montreal Region, Quebec, Canada. Frank aged 34 departs from the port of London in 1901 and travels to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on the Ship called the Evangeline, his occupation is given as a Clerk. He is not located on a ship coming back from Canada. It’s also likely that his older brother Charles may have travelled to Canada on the way back from Hong Kong and China, Charles arrives in Canada on 12 July 1926 and may or may not have met up with Frank. If he married or had children there do not appear to be any records.

Edgar Waple Lafrentz 1879-1939 was born 4 Feb 1879 in Brixton, Surry, England and died 1939. Edgar appears to be the youngest child of Julius Peter and Janet Scott Lafrentz, he has his mother’s maiden name Waple as a middle name, and is baptised in the local church in 1880. There is a death notice for Edgar Waple Lafrentz in the year 1939. We know that he leaves from the Port of Southampton, England for the Cape on the ship Galeka, part of the Union-Castle Mail Streamship Co, Ltd on the 29 of April 1905 at the age of 28. He must have returned to England because we also see him departing from Southampton, England on the ship named Kinfauns Castle, of the Union-Castle Mail Streamship Co, Ltd for Natal on the 10th September 1910. He married a woman named Evelyn ?, and they had two children McDuff Lafrentz and Edgar Lafrentz who died in Namibia in 1983, said to have died a millionaire with no wife or children. 

Edgar Waple married Elizabeth Lucinda Evelina Crawley on 14 08 1918. They had only one child, my father Edgar Richard Lafrentz on 17 06 1920 in Boksburg. He was also known to his family as McDuff. Edgar married Dorothy Constance Law on 22 01 1944 in Boksburg. They migrated to Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) where they had 2 daughters Barbara Elizabeth born 14 08 1946 and me, Dianne Mary born O4 03 1949. Barbara died on 28 O3 1984. I have no knowledge of the Lafrenz who lived in Namibia but know there is an industrial site with that name in Windhoek. My married name is Enslin and I have 2 sons Michael and Steven George.
Interesting. I thought McDuff was an odd name for a boy or a girl. So, they are one in the same. Since the post above I have come across some further information on your family, its too large to post, I wondered if you wanted a copy and how I might get it to you by email?
