For Uncle Billy copper-beating, drawing and painting were hobbies, whereas his main occupations were woodwork-to a high level (models of boats to be found in South Kensington Museum and the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro) - alongside his source of income as a telegraph clerk.
Humphry Davy School, Penzance, also has examples of his monumental wood-carving.
