Biographical history

Evan Jones ('Ieuan Gwynedd'; 1820-1859), Congregational minister, journalist and social reformer, was born in Bryn Tynoriaid, near Dolgellau. His lifelong ill-health ensured little professional success although he wrote several articles and other works such as A Vindication of the Educational and Moral Condition of Wales ..., 1848, and Facts Figures and Statements in Illustrations of the Dissent and Morality of Wales ..., 1849.
