http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/145931006?searchTerm=%22THeodore%20Werner%22&searchLimits=sortby=dateAsc
 - here he is listed as "of Dublin and Amsterdam".

He was still in London in 1908 when he was in court again:

Now, I find some more references to him in Spanish here, apparently he ended up in Spain...

Theodor Werner (Amsterdam, 1863-Lleida, 1927), violinista. Als 17 anys anà al Reial Conservatori de Berlín, on estudià durant cinc anys amb Josef Joachim i coincidí amb Enrique Fernández Arbós i Fritz Kreisler, entre altres. Oferí concerts a Europa –en alguns d’ells acompanyà Pablo de Sarasate al piano), Austràlia i Amèrica -on se li oferí ésser primer professor de violí del Conservatori de Filadèlfia. Com a conseqüència de la Primera Guerra Mundial va venir a Espanya. Passà temporades a Balaguer, on conegué Nadal Puig, amb qui realitzà concerts diversos. A la seva mort, Puig se’n feu càrrec d’alguns dels seus objectes personals

It says he went to Berlin aged 17. A search here turns up a possible:

Werner, Wilhelm Theodoor, b. 1863 - appears to be the son of Johann Hendrik Fredrick Werner and Maria Katherina Jackel - a note in his record has a date from 1883 and 'Berlin' - recording his move?
