Percy Chester Dwhytie
« on: Monday 10 May 10 05:31 BST (UK) »
I am looking for information on Percy Chester Dwhytie. The only info I have been able to find, through Ancestry.com is that he was born around 1889, in Toxteth Park, Lancashire, England. I have also found a reference to a William Dwhytie on a Lancashire census form, listed as an 8 year old "waif or stray", but I can not find a date on the form. Possibly a sibling or father.

Hi

On the 1901 Census there is a William DWHYTIE in a Home for Waifs and Strays in Brick Street Warrington Lancashire.  His age is given as 8 and his birthplace is Not Known.

I will see what else I can find for you

Cheers

Thanks, I have a copy of that census record but could not find a date on it.
My father was Harold Nelson, born March 11, 1909. He came to Canada with his mother, Sarah Jessie Nelson (nee Poole), and Grew up as Harold Nelson. In 1935 he needed a birth certificate and found that he had actualy been born Harold Dwhytie. Sarah Jessie was married to a John Nelson, with a Percy Cester Dwhytie listed as one of the witnesses at the wedding. It would appear that Percy was my grandfather but I can find no other reference to him but that census form. Quite a mystery.

The West Derby birth looks right.

It looks like Harold and his mother, Jessie S. Nelson are permanently in Canada by 1916.

In 1912 Harold, 3 and his mother Jessie S. Nelson, 40 arrived in Canada on the Empress of Ireland. She said she was going to husband but it's written over as Partner and it looks like she's given six month to stay.

Then in 1916, on the Scandinavian, she's back again ....
Mrs Jessie S. Nelson, 46 and Harold, 6. She's going to Winnipeg and has been in Canada before, 3 years, Manitoba.

They are on the 1916 Manitoba census with John Nelson, 61. Jessie is 44? and Harold is 7.

So we're looking for a Dwhytie in England who could be Harold's father, I think ???

Can't find a birth for Joseph Tracy Dwhytie in England/Wales.   Is it an Irish name?
