Audrey was born in Ixelles, Brussels, Belgium. Joseph was born in Úžice/Auschiz, Bohemia, the son of Victor John George Ruston and Anna Juliana/Julianna Franziska/Francisca Karolina/Carolina Wels/Wells/Welsová, and was of English and Austrian and/or German, as well as possibly Czech, descent.

Ella was of almost entirely Dutch descent (including Frisian), and had some remote non-Dutch roots (she had 1/128 French ancestry, as well as remote English roots on a similarly distant level).

    It says in this link that Emma also has Scottish and Welsh heritage, and I think it is from her mother. Here is the link: http://newscentral.exsees.com/item/75bc9586d241776a03439975eb345372-4b456f5a5f9c87299459c56af51e844b
