Percy Wrights Shop
« on: Sunday 16 August 20 15:01 BST (UK) »
Ok all, i know this is a very very long shot, but thought i would give it a go.
I have all details connecting him to Norfolk. But details are almost non existent of his time in Nottingham after being born and marrying in Attleborough Norfolk.

I am looking for details of a shop in Nottingham ran / owned by my family connection
Percy Wright, would have been around the 1930s - 50s. And also if possible a death.

Thanks.

When was he born - it helps if you are looking for his death.  There are a few Percy Wright's baptised in Attleborough....

Hi. I have believe the below is mine,

Percy George Wright was born June 5th 1890 Wayland = Attleborough, 1911 census shows him as 11 yrs old.

There is another, but don't think he is mine.

Thanks Jool,
That would be correct. A deep search and i find a small note in my files that suggests there were two.
So  this must be my Percy. Parents Ellis & Emma Wright, formally Emma Kemp.
This would be the man who owned the shop in Nottingham,
