At the time of the 1891 census Percy was at school at 9 Mabelthorpe Lodge, Christchurch. The school was run by Joseph Tuckwell (aged 40) from Exeter in Devon. Only 4 pupils are shown in the census. There is no trace of Percy in the 1901 UK census probably because he was overseas at the time. It is known that he fought in the Boer War and was awarded medals. Unconfirmed stories say that Percy was a renegade, a spy during World War 1 and a walking racer who travelled the world. Australian immigration records show the a P L Adey aged 22 arrived in Victoria, Australia during May 1904 on board a ship named the Perthshire. This does not exactly match the age of Percy as he would have been about 24 years old in 1904. Percy was living at The Pacific Hotel, Boise, Ada County, Idaho at the time of the USA WW1 draft registration. He registration details list his occupation as herder working for Harvey & Weeks in Smiths Ferry, Boise. They also say that he was medium height, slender build with blue eyes and blonde hair. Harvey & Weeks may have raised cattle in Idaho and employed herders to drive the cattle down to Oklahoma & Texas where the slaughterhouses were. According to information at Ellis Island he boarded the Santa Ana bound for New York from Peru, Chile and the Canal Zone having joined the crew originally on 27th December 1919 in New York but he deserted at Valparazio on 10th January 1920. His position on the Santa Ana reads PO Jessman which perhaps should read messman. On 3rd March 1921 he arrived in New York from Antwerp as a member of the crew of the Kroonland a Red Star Liner. At this time Percy aged 41 was 5ft 8in tall and weighed 164lbs. He had no distinguishing marks. He married Victoria Johnson Lundquist a postmistress in Fallon, Kansas possibly because he thought she had money but in reality she was as poor as he was. Supposedly Percy was verbally and physically abusive to his wife and step daughters and he abandoned the family when his daughter was 6 months old. There were rumours that Percy moved to Australia when he left Victoria, these have not been confirmed but he may have stayed with his sister Ellen Eliza who went to Western Australia in around 1900. It is rumoured that Percy was involved in some way in the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics. USA Social Security Number 440-12-1810 was issued to Percy in Oklahoma before 1951 but it is not known when. He died on 19th November 1966 in ZIP code 91744 area which is La Puenta, Los Angeles, California, USA.
