One of the founders of Welsh *Calvinistic Methodism. Born at Trefeca, nr Talgarth in Brecknockshire, he was intended for ordination in the Anglican Church. In 1735 he was converted to a life of great religious seriousness, and later in the year at his brother’s insistence went up to St Mary Hall, Oxford, but only stayed for a week, condemning it as ‘this Mother Harlot of Laud’. He returned home to begin an itinerant lay ministry, organizing his converts into religious ‘societies’. He was refused ordination by the bp of St David’s, though he always remained technically an Anglican.
