was undoubtedly of Llanrhaeadr Mochnant, Denbs., but very little is known about him. He was a good poet and a sound exponent of the classical forms. He was also a good prose writer and had conducted an animated discussion with Cawrdaf (W. E. Jones) in Yr Eurgrawn on the subject of apparitions. His song ‘Efo Deio i Dowyn,’ shows that he could also write popular poetry.
