Arthur William NORTH

Born in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire on 15 November 1857 (GRO), he studied at Antwerp (1882).  For the 1886 RA exhibition, he gave his sending-in address as Cliff House, Newlyn. He and his wife were mentioned by Stanhope FORBES in a letter to his mother (19 Nov 1885) which clearly implies that they were not new arrivals at that time.

His life was cut very short, however, as he died on 9 February, 1887 at age 29 in Huddersfield (GRO).
