Hi there,
I'm looking for a Percival Fisher who was born in Leeds in 1887. I've found a couple of journeys to Canada in 1906 and 09 and wondered if he stayed there? I think his wife may be called Jennie.
I'd be so greatful for any help.
Thanks,
Edwina

Hello Edwina - where did you find these journeys?

I'm not seeing any arrivals in Canada for him ....

Do you know where he was on the 1901 census and who with? If we can confirm his identity from that we'll have a better chance of tracing him.
