Morgan, William

Morgan, William a learned British prelate, was born at Gwibernant, in Carnarvonshire. Wales, in the second half of the 16th century, and was educated at St. John's College, Cambridge. We know but little of his progress in the Church, but we find that in 1595 he was elevated to the episcopate of Llandaff, and in 1601 was transferred to the see of St. Asaph. He died in 1604. Bishop Morgan is worthy of immortal honor as the author of the translation of the Scriptures into Welsh, published in 1588; also the translation of the Psalms in the same year.
