  • DAFYDD, PHILIP (1732 - 1814), Methodist exhorter of Newcastle Emlyn dissenting ministers were accused of 'collaboration' with the French; a scurrilous 'ballad' of his against these dissenters provoked the wrath of William Richards of Lynn (1749 - 1818) in his pamphlet The Triumphs of Innocency, 1798 - see on this matter J.
