Samuel John Lamorna Birch attracted by the reputation of the nascent Newlyn colony of artists, arrived in Cornwall in 1889. He initially took up lodgings at Boleigh farm at the head of the Lamorna valley, not far from Newlyn. It was from this area that he took his nickname of 'Lamorna' Birch, at the suggestion of Stanhope Forbes, to distinguish himself from another artist called Lionel Birch who painted in Newlyn.
