This is a prize-winning collection of nearly 2,000 biographical essays pertaining to men and women who were either born in Wales or of Welsh descent and flourished between 1700 and 1900. The essays, which surely amount to the finest “Who was Who” for Welshmen of this era, typically give the subject’s years of birth and death, place of birth, and father’s or Welsh ancestor’s name; a lengthy treatment of the distinguished individual’s career; and the sources consulted. In view of the scarcity of published sources for Welsh genealogy, Eminent Welshmen represents a rough and ready key to the benefactors and, by extension, to the families of the Welsh nation.
