Sydney joined his father on trips to Odda Norway and settled there earning a living by selling his art.


In 1911 Raphael Tuck and sons Ltd of London included in there “Oilette” World Wide range of postcards 6 paintings by Sydney, these remained in there catalogue up to 1930.

The sales of art dropped and the death of his father in 1916 had an effect on him. He became  Reclusive and did not get on with the local people, 20 plus years in Odda he lived in 2 hotels.

In 1921 a chambermaid went in to his room in the morning and found him in his room bleeding from a wound.

The name Falmouth is of English origin. (Present-day speakers of the Cornish language use Aberfal or Aberfala based on Welsh precedents.) It is claimed that an earlier Celtic name for the place was Peny-cwm-cuic (which translates to English as ‘head of the creek’) which is the same as the anglicised “Pennycomequick” district in Plymouth

Falmouth was where Henry VIII built Pendennis Castle to defend Carrick Roads in 1540. The main town of the district was then at Penryn. Sir John Killigrew created the town of Falmouth shortly after 1613.[6]

In the late 16th century, under threat from the Spanish Armada, the defences at Pendennis were strengthened by the building of angled ramparts. During the Civil War, Pendennis Castle was the second to last fort to surrender to the Parliamentary Army
