It is thought that this may be possibly be F A WILLIAMS. Frederick Adolphus Williams (known as Freddie) was town clerk of Padstow in the 1930s. He was married to Flora (nee Garey).
This information was provided by his great-nephew in 2013. Three fine paintings of sailing ships (one dated January 1933) are in the possession of the family.
Another descendant has been in touch (2020) to tell us of two paintings of sailing ships (dated November 1930) which have been in his family for many years. He recalls that his maternal grandmother Elizabeth Jane Gamblin's sister Flora (one of eight siblings) settled in Cornwall, presumably becoming the wife of F A Williams.
