Biography

William Joseph Holloway Lees was born in 1886 at Dudley, Worcestershire, England. He was the son of William Lees and Elizabeth Holloway[1]. He was christened on 1 Aug 1888 at St. Thomas, Dudley[2]. Note: The christening record gives his birth date as 1 Jul 1887 but that must be a transcript error because his birth was registered in 1886.

In the 1901 census, William was age 14 living at Ludgate Street, Dudley with his father William Lees (53), mother Elizabeth Lees (52), brothers Samuel Lees (27), Thomas Lees (20), John Lees (12), sisters Elizabeth Lees (24), Alice Lees (23), Nellie Lees (21), Rose Lees (18). Occupation: Boot Warehouseman[4].

In the 1911 census, William was age 24 living at Dudley with his father William Lees (62), mother Elizabeth Lees (61), brother John Lees (22), sisters Nellie Lees (31), Rose Lees (28). Occupation: Boot Maker and Boot Keeper[5].
