Dates of existence


Hugh Jones (Erfyl, 1789-1858), writer, was uncle to John Owen (Owain Alaw) and nephew to Hugh Jones, Maesglasau (1749-1825), translator and hymnist. A cripple, Erfyl received a sound education which enabled him to earn a living as a schoolmaster and to turn his hand to writing. From 1835 to 1840 he edited Y Gwladgarwr and from 1844 to 1847 was one of those who undertook the translation of Y Beibl Darluniadol. In his latter years he oversaw the printing of Welsh books at Chester.
