  • Notes 
    • Although Percy's birth was registered at Mt Baker, he was actually born at "Meadow Bank", Strathalbyn. He was the last of the grandchildren born at the Allan McLean house as Allan removed to Collinsfield near Redhill later that year.
      Percy was educated at Pulteney Grammar School, Adelaide, after the family moved to the city from Mt Templeton.
      He was a wizard at and made a ready reckoner which was much sought after by the racing fraternity for whom he worked as a penciller at race courses. [1]
