I have a oil portrait of a 19th century lady in a very ornate frame that is signed G Walters, but I can not find any information on the artist. Does his work have any value and where can I find information on him?

He was a prolific exhibitor, and he painted on the Channel coasts as well as landscapes in the Lake District, the Thames and Wales and scenes on the Venetian Lagoon. His work is sometimes on a very large scale and he has a penchant for pinks, russets and sunset.. He was a portrait painter, though it wasn't his specialty.

I do not think that is the same artist since he signed his painting G.S. Walters. The painting at this link, http://www.rubylane.com/item/213082-RLx20DDOil/Portrait-Oil-Painting-Duchess-De-Chartes, is very similar to mine and by the same artist.

Hello
After a lot of research, I was unable to find any information in the artist. I can confirm as that it's not George Stanfield Walters, it was the only artist that could match. However the signature is different, though it's common that an artist has different signatures, we cannot say that the artist is GS Walter or other contemporary G Walters painter.
Sorry I cannot provide more information about the biography, simply the information doesn't exist.
