Born on 5 December 1864, Sheerness, Isle of Sheppey, Kent (GRO), the son of the artist Henry Edwin TOZER (1838-1913), he often included one or two figures - usually an elderly couple - in his paintings, and is mentioned specifically by Wood as a painter of country life, with a bias towards cottage interiors.
He was known to have exhibited at Birmingham as well as exhibiting and selling a painting at the Opening of NAG. Addresses used were in Newlyn, Cape Cornwall and St Just in artists' lists, but the brothers are most closely associated with the St Just area of West Cornwall. Nevertheless, HES Tozer died in Thursley, nr Haslemere on 15 November 1955, at the age of 90 (GRO).
