Percival was the second son born to Alfred Edward and Matilda Dora Jowett.

Percival joined the staff of Mactaggarts Stock and Station Agency in Brisbane as an office boy in 1911 and his unchallenged record of 60 years employment was interrupted only by his WWI service in France. After the war he returned to his former employment where he subsequently became head storeman for 14 years and at the time of his death in 1971 had been Produce Department Manager for Mactaggarts Primary Producers Co-operative Assoc. Ltd. for 36 years. Percy 'Digger' Jowett had a unique personality and he was considered to be one of Australia's greatest authorities on animal hides. On November 4th 1927 he married Elsie Marion Braham and they became parents of two daughters and one son. Percival was born in Port Douglas, Queensland on 7th June 1894 and died in Brisbane on 7th July 1971. He enlisted on 30th January 1917 and served in France with the 9th, 33rd and 34th Battalions AIF.
