Their father became a woolbuyer and the family moved to Sydney in 1882; the brothers were educated at Royston College, Darlinghurst. Percy attended the University of Sydney (B.A., 1887), was articled to Creagh & Williams and, admitted a solicitor on 6 June 1891, set up in practice.

He was a council-member of the (Royal) Australian Historical Society in 1912-18 and published many articles and pamphlets including two bibliographies, Australasian Shakespeareana (1915) and Australian Judaica (1930, 1936). He was a committee-member of the Australian Ex-Libris Society, the Society of Australian Genealogists and the Numismatic Society, and a fellow of the Royal Colonial Institute.
