Address/Location:





William Williams Pantycelyn
William, a Methodist cleric, author, poet and hymn-writer, was born in 1717 at Cefn-coed , Llanfair-ar-y-bryn. His father was an elder in the Independent church, but William took orders in the Church of England and was appointed curate in Llanwrtyd. His Methodist beliefs meant that he was refused ordination and became one of the leaders of the Welsh Methodist revival. He wrote several collections of hymns in Welsh and English, including Guide Me Oh Thou Great Jehovah. He died in 1791, was buried in Llanfair-ar-y-Bryn and is commemorated by a memorial chapel in Llandovery. William Williams Pantycelyn, also known as Williams Pantycelyn and Pantycelyn, was the son of John Williams, a small farmer at Pantycelyn ("holly hollow"); his mother's name was Dorothy. His father died in 1742. The farm is located 4 miles from Llandovery in West Wales. As a boy he attended a Nonconformist church (chapel) at Cefnarthen.
