He is referred to as ‘Thomas Davies from Montgomeryshire’ (‘o Sir Drefaldwyn’), but nothing more is known about him. Some of his poems are to be found in 18th century anthologies. A copy of his best-known poem ‘Histori dduwiol sef Cerdd y Crys Gwaedlyd ar “loath to depart”,’ is to be found in N.L.W. MS. 700 (16) and also in Cwrtmawr MS. 222 (22b).
