Owen Wynne Jones

Owen Wynne Jones (4 March 1828 – 4 April 1870), often known by his bardic name of Glasynys, was a Welsh clergyman and author.

Owen Wynne Jones was born at a house called Ty'n-y-ffrwd, in the village of Rhostryfan, near Caernarfon. At the age of ten, he was sent to work in the quarry, but later returned to full-time education and went on to train as a teacher. In 1855 he began teaching at Llanfachreth in Merionethshire. He began to assist Eben Fardd in arranging local eisteddfodau. In 1860 he was ordained as an Anglican clergyman and worked as a curate in several parishes. He wrote many articles and co-edited the periodical Y Glorian with William Thomas (Islwyn).
