  • 1. Victor canning
  • 2. Victor canning – Biography • • Victor Canning was born on 16th June 1911, in Plymouth, Devon, the eldest child of Fred Canning, and his wife Mabel, née Gold. The address of the family according to the 1911 census which took place just before Victor's birth was 6 Row den Street, Peverell, Plymouth, and his father's profession was given as "taxidriver", though elsewhere he described himself as "coach-builder". During WW1 his father served as an ambulance driver in France and Flanders, while Victor with his two sisters went to live in the village of Cal stock ten miles north of Plymouth, where his uncle Cecil Goold worked for the railways and later became station master. After the war the family returned to Plymouth. In the mid 1920s they moved to Oxford where his father had found work, and Victor attended the Oxford Central School. Here he was encouraged to stay on at school and go to university by a classical scholar, Dr. Bernard Henderson, who promised to get Victor a place at Oxford University, but the family could not afford it and instead he went to work as a clerk in the education office at age 16, first in Oxford, later in Weston-superMare.
