As you may recall I extracted details from the episcopal records in
connection with the Church of England Database. These did not directly
involve family information but, as to the career of Daniel Evans, I have the
He was ordained Deacon 1 Jul 1822 by Thomas Burgess, Bishop of St Davids
" Priest 21 Sep 1822 by the same bishop when he
was licensed as Stipendiary Curate for Llanllwyny, Carmarthenshire
He was licensed to the Curacy of Cilymaenllwyd and Castellyderran 4 Sep
Before ordination it would have been necessary for ordination papers to have
been sent to the Bishop. These would contain testimonials and a copy of
the Parish Registry entry confirming baptism with, of course details of his
parents. These records are held in the National Library.
There is no evidence that Daniel was a graduate. In fact, if he had been
this would certainly have been mentioned in the Episcopal Register. Even as
late as 1822 there were many ordinands, especially in Wales, without
degrees, the only qualification was to be "literate".
Since St David's Theological College in Lampeter was only founded in 1822,
Daniel would not have attended that institution. However, as I say, his
ordiantion papers will give details of his education.

Subject: [Dyfed] Rev Daniel Evans Llandysilio Pembs/Carms
I am trying to trace a Rev Daniel Griffith Evans whose home in 1841 census
was Blaenavon Llandysilio East Parish, Carmarthenshire. This was the rectory
for Cilymaenllwyd parish and Church. I have managed to find some facts on
him through Alumni records but they did not give me his father or his
Daniel had died by 1851 census leaving a widow Cicily Evans and children all
living in Blaenavon Llandissilio East in 1851. I do not have therefore
Daniel's place of birth..
From the Alumni facts, I could see that he was curate of Cilymaenllwyd
1820's. and later he was Vicar of Llangolman Pembrokeshire parish. There is
a wall plaque to his memory inside Llangolman church.
Daniel married Cicily
Griffiths of Llangolman parish at Llangolman church in
1830. The entry stated he was of Llandysilio but probably he was resident at
Blaenavon Vicerage before his marriage.
I should be very grateful if anyone can supply me with his father's name and
place of birth.. I have looked at Llandysilio parish records more than once
but have failed to find his birth.
He may be a member of my family tree as he has same christian names as my
family from Llandissilio(Daniel Griffith) and also grandfather told me that
there was a vicar in the tree. I have failed to find any other vicar!
