About this book

This biography, by local author David Rabson, follows the Reverend William Arthur Jones through his early days in Carmarthen. He was one of Taunton's (Somerset, England) civic life's leading figures of the mid-19th century, now largely forgotten. The book describes his university studies in Glasgow, his ministry in Northampton, and his life in Somerset from 1849 to his death in 1873 at the early age of 55. In Taunton he was a highly regarded figure, playing leading roles in the early days of the Archaeology Society and in many other civic institutions, among them the School of Art, which he founded; the Taunton Waterworks Company and the Taunton and Somerset Hospital.
