Your letter to the Hull Register Office dated 9th December 1999 has been passed to me.

The correct name of this person is William Walker Atkinson; many of his publications are listed in the British Museum Catalogue of Printed Books (copy enclosed).

Beyond that, I'm sorry to say, I can not help you. We have a complete list of all the residents of the UK at the time of the 1881 census, but I'm sorry to have to tell you that, according to the census, there was no-one called William W Atkinson born in Hull. There were only two people called William W Atkinson born in the whole of the Yorkshire region: one who was born Leeds 1863 and was a Private in the 84t" Regiment based at Tanshelf in 1881, and the other who was 7 years old and was born in Whitby, the son of a Whitby jet worker. I don't think that either of these can be your Yogi.

Please let me know if you do ever find out anything about his Hull origins. We would like to claim him!

Yours sincerely,
