Hi, I'm new here, and was wondering if anyone knows anything about the swansea devil?

All I know is from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swansea_Devil

I have tried searching through online newspaper archives and apart from lots of adverts asking for donations toward the cost of building the church I have not been able to find out anything about the church or its iconoclast.
