Enw'r crëwr

Hanes bywgraffyddol

David Erwyd Jenkins, Calvinistic Methodist minister and historian, was born in Pont-Yates, Carmarthenshire. He began preaching at Ebenezer Calvinistic Methodist church in Newport, Monmouthshire. Following his graduation from University College, Aberystwyth Jenkins was appointed pastor, in 1893, at Llanbadarn Fawr, followed by pastorates at Tremadog (1895) and Denbigh (1901). It was in Denbigh that Jenkins embarked on his lifelong research into the history of the Calvinistic Methodist cause and also upon his publishing career, which included an exhaustive three-volume biography of Thomas Charles. He was appointed by the Calvinistic Methodist History Society to copy, and edit for publication, the correspondence and diaries of Howel Harris but the project never came to fruition due to the intervention of the Great War and Jenkins spent most of his remaining life as assistant master at Denbigh Intermediate School.
