Lillingston was born in Birmingham and lived in London, Cheltenham, Leamington Spa, Newlyn and Plymouth. He settled in Newlyn prior to 1890, where he remained until circa 1913.
Interestingly, the date of this painting (1883) would suggest that he visited Newlyn several years before he moved to Cornwall. In 1883 he would have found fellow Birmingham artists Walter Langley, Edwin Harris, William Breakspeare, David Haddon and William Wainwright working in the fledgling colony.
