Lewis Edwards (circa 1875)


Welsh educator and Nonconformist minister, one of the makers of modern Wales. His chief publication was a noteworthy book on the doctrine of the Atonement, cast in the form of a dialogue between master and pupil.

In 1836 he married Jane Charles, the granddaughter of Thomas Charles (1755–1814), a prominent Calvinistic Methodist minister. Their son Thomas Charles Edwards became the first Principal of the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth.

He died on 19 July 1887, aged 77.
