Percy was the fourth son of Frederick John and Fanny Elizabeth (nee Hankin), born in Ashwell in 1888. Percy’s father owned the building company in Ashwell.

He was a pupil at the Merchant Taylor School in Ashwell. 

The 1911 census shows him living with his sister, Fanny, and her husband Jack Allman in Bowes Park, North London.  He was a brewer’s clerk.

It is believed Percy married Frances W Muncey in 1935 and it is believed they had one daughter, Violet A born in 1940.  It appears Percy married again in 1946 to Dorothy R Dobbs but it is not known if they had any children.
