a native of Bedwellty, Mon. In 1771 Thomas Williams (1697 - 1778) of Mynydd-bach, Carms., published a volume of verse translated by Henry Evans from the English, entitled Cynghorion Tad i'w Fab, which included a letter from Stephen Hughes, dated 12 March 1682/3, stating that he had received the book for publication from the author, who thus must have been a contemporary of Stephen Hughes 's. An original poetical work entitled Ymddiddan rhwng Hen Wr Dall a'r Angau was published in 1764; other editions appeared in 1781 and in 1807. On the title-page of the last edition the author is named as ‘Harri Evan William o'r Bedwellty, sir Fynwy.’
