He lived at Garth Fawr in the parish of Llandinam, Montgomeryshire, but worshipped with the Arminian Baptists of Radnorshire. There is no record of his having received a stipend for his ministry after 1658. He debated publicly with Alexander Parker and John Moon, the Quakers, at Scurwy, a farm near Rhayader (see the article on HUGH EVANS (? - 1656). After his early death his widow married William Price, Bucknell. Bownd published jointly with John Price, Maes-y-gelli, Nantmel parish, Radnorshire, a book entitled The Sun Outshining the Moon (London, 1658).
