Default I think my fate is to never know

I finally get a halfway decent match (275cM),on My Heritage and quickly worked out it's a maternal link that ties into the ever expanding mystery group of descendants from a family called Wesseldine.

This one is a lady in her 80's with a tiny tree but just enough to work out who she is and who her parents are but then comes the problem. From her perspective it's a link through her paternal grandfather but not only was he illegitimate (and no likely birth ref), he then changed his name when he signed up for the army. To make matters worse several Ancestry trees claim that he, and his siblings all share the same father though given the 'father' died before several of the siblings were born that clearly isn't the case.

I've managed to build her tree and link her to others in the group but can't fathom the link from any of them to me. All I know is that none of them match my maternal cousins and just convinces me more that either my mother or grandfther is an NPE .

Hopefully one of these days a new match will show up which will resolve it.

This mew match has to be a 'half' and I'm not convinced there's anyone more closely related to me than she is but the mother of her name swapping illegitimate grandfather is the issue. She could (probably did),) have kids with four or five men hence so many surnames in my matches.

The fact none match my maternal 1c1r's and a lack of matches for any of us through a male ancestor is what I am struggling with, I can't fathom if my mother is an NPE or there's just no testers coming forward. If one of my maternal half sibs would test it would be a huge help but that's never going to happen in my lifetime.
