Enw'r crëwr

Hanes bywgraffyddol

Thomas Charles ('Charles o'r Bala'; 1755-1814) was most likely born in Longmoor in the parish of Llanfihangel Abercywyn, Carmarthenshire. He became one of Wales's greatest Methodist leaders and educationalists, taking a primary role in establishing Cymdeithas y Beiblau (The Bible Society) in order to disseminate inexpensive Bibles in the Welsh language, and also in establishing sunday schools - an aspect of religious life which became prevalent amongst the Methodists.

David Charles (1812-1878), Calvinistic Methodist minister and grandson of Thomas Charles, was born in Bala. In 1837 he established a school which later became Coleg y Bala (Bala Congregational College). In 1842 he was appointed principal of Trefeca College, a position he held for twenty years.
