Daniel Rowland

Daniel Rowland (also spelt Rowlands; c.1711 – 16 October 1790) was one of the foremost leaders of the Welsh Calvinistic Methodist revival, along with Howell Harris and William Williams. For most of his life he was curate in the parishes of Nantcwnlle and Llangeitho, Ceredigion. He was renowned as a preacher and made Llangeitho memorable as a centre for Calvinistic Methodism in Wales. His date of birth was traditionally given as 1713 but more recent research indicates 1711.[1]

The Anglican Church authorities deprived him of his Nantcwnlle curacy in c. 1763, an action which was unpopular with parishioners.[2] Following this, he established a Methodist "cause" in Llangeitho.

His early preaching was frightening: he gave much attention to God's judgment in his sermons. But as he matured in his ministry, he placed more emphasis on the saving work of Jesus on the cross. His theology and character was seen as more consistent and stable than that of his counterpart Howel Harris during the revival.

One of his great-grandchildren was the novelist Anne Adalisa Puddicombe (Allen Raine).
