Thomas, Thomas, D.D.
a Welsh Baptist minister and educator, was born at Cowbridge, January 12, 1805. He began to preach when fifteen years of age, and labored with much zeal. At the age of seventeen he entered the Baptist College at Abergavenny, and two years later removed to Stepney College, where he spent four years in faithful study. In 1828 he entered upon the pastorate of the Church in Henrietta Street, Brunswick Square, London, where he remained eight years. In 1836, on the removal of Abergavenny College to Pontypool, he became its president, and retained the office until 1877. In the beginning of this work he was energetic in his ministerial labors, and soon formed a Baptist Church, which, in time, became the leading one of the town. He died December 6, 1881. See (Lond.) Baptist Hand-book, 1883, page 278.
