Thomas Evans (1840 - 1865)
Thomas Evans (Telynog) was a Welsh poet. When about fifteen he devoted his leisure hours to music, and attracted public attention as a singer. Shortly after this he competed successfully at a small eisteddfod, held at the chapel where he was a member, for the best poem on ‘Humility.’ This brought him into public notice, and henceforth his name was constantly in the local papers and in connection with eisteddfodau, where he won twenty prizes.
