After a period at Bala Grammar School, he went to University College, Aberystwyth, for two terms to study agriculture. He then worked at home on the farm in Tŷ Du, moving after his marriage to Llwyn Mafon, where he continued farming. A very cultured man, who wrote poetry, read a great deal, and took a great interest in local history and religion. He was secretary of the Calvinistic Methodist chapel in Parc, and a Sunday school teacher. Gretta Jones, Tŷ Du, Parc, Owen T.
