Does anybody know roughly when ending a statement or question with "anyway" started being used?

i have not seen it used or written down prior to the broadcast of the TV programme "whose line is it anyway?", though I'm certain it was in modern parlance before that.

I'm not sure there was ever a time when it couldn't end a sentence. Certainly this usage goes back at least 150 years. Widsith 13:11, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
