T.W. Connor 
Last updated: 27.04.22
It is surprising that so little is known about this composer considering the large number of compositions located. All that can presently (May 2020) be gleaned about T.W. Connor from sheet music covers and by Internet searching is that he has 157 works published between 1890 and 1926.
According to the Internet source given below, he was a music hall composer, a writer of monologues and lyrics and best known for his association with variety comedian Billy Bennett for whom he wrote many monologues.
Of his songs still sung today are She Was One of the Early Birds, and I Was One of the Worms (1895) and At My Time O' Life (1896), both published by Francis, Day & Hunter, London W.C.2, England.
