Enw'r crëwr

Hanes bywgraffyddol

Alcwyn Caryni Evans (1828-1902), antiquarian and schoolmaster, was born on 14 May 1828, the son of Evan Donard Evans, schoolmaster. He ran a grammar school in Lammas Street, Carmarthen, for forty years and was married twice, first to Elizabeth Amelia Rees and later to Mary Thomas. Alcwyn C. Evans was a highly thorough and industrious antiquary who concentrated his studies mainly on the genealogies of the ancient families of South Wales and on the town and county of Carmarthen, frequently supplementing existing information with his own assiduous research. An essay on the history of Carmarthen won Evans first prize at the National Eisteddfod of 1867. He edited and annotated J. R. Daniel-Tyssen's Royal Charters ... of the Town and County of Carmarthen (1878). He was a member of the Cambrian Archaeological Association and of the Carmarthen Literary and Scientific Institute. For many years, it was Alcwyn C. Evans who prepared the rate books for the town of Carmarthen.
