I think you best bet is to find his parents and then look for them in census records in the US and Canada.
If you do not know his father, and he was married in England, then I would recommend ordering his marriage certificate from the GRO. It will give his father's name and occupation. Link below to the GRO (General Record Office)of the UK.
If you don't have access at a subscription site to UK marriages, then try http://freebmd.org.uk to identify his marriage.
