Looking for information on above person. I know that he moved from Ireland in early 1900sto either Canada or America with family.
He fought with the Canadian Mounted Rifles during WW1.
Any further information would be greatly appreciated

This might be Leslie in the 1901 census:

Which may lead to this birth certificate:

Fatherís probate abstract:

Hughes Frederick Patrick of East Lane Cottage Dedham county Sussex died 23 July 1935 Probate London 16 September to William Roxburgh Farquhar retired flour miller Frederick Cairns Hughes flour miller and Guy Francis Pelham Boulton retired civil servant. Effects in Northern Ireland £8529 16s. 3d. Re-sealed Belfast 12 November.

(Frederick Patrick Hughes died in England and there is a probate file there for him too, but he had assets in Northern Ireland so action was required here too).
