Art Mystery: Can anyone help trace Peter Massey?

Request from by Pamela Perry,

I have an original painting of the raised railing pavement at Bishopsteignton by artist Peter Massey, dated 1948.
My father bought it (in 1948) when he and my mother were on leave and staying at Huntley Court when it was a hotel. Apparently it was hanging over the bar and my father liked it so much he asked if he could purchase it.

It has been left to me and I am trying to trace the artist to no avail. Perhaps there is someone who knew of him or his family?
