CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: John Richard Jones, 1765-1822, was a Baptist minister at Ramoth, Llanfrothen in Merioneth. Initially, he was aided in his work by Christmas Evans, but in a meeting in 1798 he left the Baptists to form his own Church of Scotch Baptists, which had 350 members in 1807. Today, in Harlech, Ffestiniog, Glyn Ceiriog and Rhosllannerchrugog, the denomination lives on.
