Pauline Phyllis Pape

I am looking for information on Pauline Phyllis Pape or her descendants. She was a British person living in Nakuru, Kenya around 1950 and I believe her parents ran the post office in Nakuru. In 1949/50 she became pregnant at a young age, the father of the child being an Italian PoW. I estimate her birth year to be between 1932-34. She had the baby in Nairobi in 1950 and wanted to keep her, but sadly her parents would not allow it and the child was given up for adoption. The adoption finally went through in 1953 and the child's adopted name was Frances Manka Welbourn. The adoptive parents were Fred and Hebe Welbourn, both of Makerere College in Kampala. I believe the Welbourns did meet Pauline again briefly a few years later, but nothing else is known of her whereabouts after that. I am seeking her on behalf of my partner who is Frances' son and therefore Pauline's grandson.
