Little is known about him; he was a nephew of Philip David, and therefore presumably a Monmouthshire man. The name appears on the list of Carmarthen Academy students in 1745. In 1749 he succeeded Richard Rees as pastor of the newly incorporated congregation at Cefn-coed-cymer, an offshoot of Cwm-y-glo. He was an Arminian, and probably later on an Arian. D. 19 May 1790. His uncle's diaries have several references to him.
