Ashanti (now part of Ghana)
British Nationality could be obtained through your birth, or through the birth of any one of your parents or grandparents, in Ashanti. This arises because of Britain's relationship with Ghana and its Colonial history.
To determine what form of British Nationality you might have, an analysis of your family's history must be done, and then applying it to the Nationality laws of Ghana that were passed over the years.
For more information on how British Nationality could be gained through your birth (or a parent's birth) in a British Protectorate coupled with a UK-born grandparent, watch this short video by Philip Gamble:
