THOMAS , JOHN ( 1691 - 1766 ), bishop of Salisbury .

There is a short but interesting account of his career in the D.N.B. ; he was b. 23 June 1691 , and d. 19 July 1766 . His father was a brewer's drayman , but Robert Williams ( Em. W. ) states — without giving the source of his information — that the bishop was b. at Dolgelley .
