  • Notes 
    • As a child of 2 he was dropped on his head whilst being carried downstairs by the nurse- maid. This resulted in depression of the skull on the brain, leading to retarded mental development. After his father died, he went to the Royal Earlswood School for the mentally handicapped. About 1902 he went to Canada to live in Northern Ontario with his brother Geoffrey, and later on a grant of land taken up by A.J. He was fond of music and became a good executant on a flageolet. His brother Charlie was his principal means of support, apart from hunting and especially his fishing in the Canadian backwoods.
