Information required on actor William Edwin Davis (1888-?)

I am looking for any information that may be available on this gentleman and my information is very limited.

He is my great-grandfather and on my grandfathers birth certificate (1902 Hythe, Sussex) he is listed as being a professional actor and married to Ada Jessie Davis.

There is some rumour that he may have moved to American and his wife Ada may have been a dancer but certainly with associations to the Hastings “Davis’s Steam Circus” family.

Any help very much appreciated.
