Born at Llanynys, Denbighshire, c. 1718. A contemporary of John Williams (Ioan Rhagfyr), he was a good musician. His hymn-tune ‘Hero’ appeared in Haleliwia Drachefn (G. Harries) and a ‘Traethdon’ (chant) in Y Cerddor Cymreig, August 1867; he is better known, however, for the hymn-tune called ‘Dyfrdwy.’ He died in 1798.
