Evans, C, Dd
Evans, C., D.D.
a Welsh Baptist minister, was born at Llannwchllyn, Merionethshire, June 22, 1781. He was baptized in early life, began to preach in 1809, was two years in the Abergavenny Academy, and then for seven years pastor of the small Church of Llannefyd and Llansannan. In 1823 he removed to Cefimawr, which was his residence for thirty-five years, during twenty-nine of which he was pastor of the Church in that place. Considering the imperfection of his early education, he became a more than ordinarily cultured scholar, and wrote, The Peculiar Tenets of the Baptists, and A History of the Baptists, Based on the Fundamental Principles of their System. He died March 28, 1864. See (Lond.) Baptist Hand-book, 1865, page 121. (J.C.S.)
