Biography

Personal

John Evans was born in Denbigshire, Wales, the son of Cadwallader Evans. In 1698, he came with his family to the 'Welsh Tract' of Pennsylvania. In 1715, he married at Eleanor Ellis (1685-1765), daughter of Rowland Ellis, at Merion. John Evans died in Gwynedd, Pennsylvania on September 23, 1756. He is said to have, forseeing his approaching death, uttered, "Friends, I have but an inch of time to treat with you." Near his death he felt low and dejected, but finally could exclaim, "I am easy! I am easy!"

Ministry

In 1712, John Evans became a minister and was credited with a clear and engaging manner in speaking. In this capacity, he visited most of the northern colonies. In 1740, he visited Friends North and East. In 1755, he visited subordinate meetings in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting and signed an epistle to Friends from the Y. Mtg.
