Dear Family History UK

Our ancestor Percy Atkins/Thresher/Thrasher born in 1871 Brixton was a private secretary in the 1891 census and a theatrical business manager in the 1901 census.

Is there any way of tracing who Percy was private secretary to?

Is there any way of tracing Percy's work as a theatrical business manager?

Thank you for your help

Hi

FreeBMD, Birth Reg:
Q1 1869 Percy Frederick Atkins, Lambeth. [1d, 438]

By 1911 he was possibly married and possibly working as a stock exchange clerk.

Q2 1905 Percy Atkins & Louisa Thrasher, Fulham, mar. [1a, 721]

Hi Geoff

Yes, Percy and Louisa get married in 1905. Percy is working at the London Stock Exchange in the 1911 census with his brother-in-law Herbert Lewis Solomon and Herbert's step-son Horace Courtenay.

We have since found Percy Atkins in The Stage online archive as Theatrical Business Manager.

Please does anyone know any further details about Percy's theatrical career.

The family must have been a theatrical one as Percy Atkins wife Louisa Thrasher, her sister Ruth Thrasher (Ruth Jezard) was an actress playing at The Royal Drury Lane Theatre in 1899.

Thank you!
