No.
Jack Glover was born in Bethnal Green. As far as I know, there were no Wonders Brothers. He ran the business with his wife.

That's the Antipodean idea quashed then.
I 'wonder' where the other rumour originated? The one concerning the dodgy trade-mark?

Not too difficult to deduce the origins of that as Tudah P Glover states 'Tudah Walter Glover.....was a great one for joking and misleading people' so my guess is that he intentionally created that 'trade mark' we all know so well with the 'amorphous' W just above the thumb stop, as a humorous graphic image.
