Percy Edward Pinkerton - Further Notes

I will be including here any further evidence I find to update Percy's genealogy, literary ability & history and I shall be pleased to receive information or comment most especially if it can be proven. I will begin with this conjecture:

  • Where was Percy in 1881 & 1901 as he is missing from these census records?

  • One of the challenges is in discovering what schooling Percy underwent.  How did he become so skilled in English (and poetry), let alone French, German, Italian & Russian.  Although his skill in Russian has been questioned, I would argue that his early formative years being spent in the company of his Russian grandmother Dorothea rather defeats any doubt?  We can certainly understand the Italian as he was known to have visited Italy several times and for extended periods.
