It was a manuscript transcribed by him (now N.L.W. MS. 686) that E. Stanton Roberts edited and published under the title Llysieulyfr Meddyginiaethol a briodolir i William Salesbury (Liverpool, 1916). Evan Thomas also owned Cwrt Mawr MS. l, N.L.W. MS. 642 and (a fact not then known to E. Stanton Roberts) N.L.W. MS. 4581. The latter is a copy made by Roger Morris, Coed y Talwrn, Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd, of the Welsh herbal attributed to Salesbury, his friend and contemporary. He is probably the ‘Evan Thomas of Penmaen Township,’ whose death, on 12 January 1781, is recorded in the Llanfor parish register.
