    Biographical history

    Percival Wellington Inglis was born in 1875 in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, the son of Charles and Cassandra (Zwicker) Inglis. He attended King's College in Windsor, N.S. After completing his education, Percy returned to Mahone Bay to work in his father's store, which was known as the C.J. Inglis store, with his sister Grace. When Charles died in 1915, Percy assumed full responsiblitity for the store and it became known as the Percy W. Inglis store. He expanded the merchandise of the store to include fine china, locally hooked rugs, and floral arrangements. Percy was named a local notary republic and from the store issued marriage licenses, witnessed deeds and other legal documents. In his spare time Percy became an avid collector of fine antique china and furniture, and occasionally offered interested visitors tours of his house to view his collection. He managed the store until he died in 1950.
