Unless he married, he won't have any legitimate descendants

Start by looking for marriage info....use freebmd

Was his birth registered as 'JIM'?

Is this connected to your previous threads about HAIRYES etc?

When did his mother die?

Who registered her death?

You can look for possible marriages on free bmd for Edward J Lawrance or Edward Lawrance.
Try Leeds, then Yorkshire, then guesswork.
