1 G. Eyre Evans gives Edward Donnard Evans ; see Trans. Carms Ant. Soc., Vol. iv (1908) p.15. But in a holograph of his own pedigree Alcwyn Evans has it thus: Evan "Donard" Evans; see National Library of Wales MS. 12356E.
2 The Dictionary of Welsh Biography gives 1847 in error.

8 There are unrecorded reports that he kept school elsewhere in Carmarthen. For example, Mrs E. Lewis of Carmarthen informs the writer that her father, the late Peter Hughes of the Red Cow, Bridge Street, Carmarthen, went to Alcwyn Evans's school at the eastern end of Little Bridge Street, now demolished, below the Red Cow; he walked from Pontantwn and later Llandyfaelog to attend this school. According to Malcolm and Edith Lodwick, the Quaker meeting house was used as a school until 1887; see The Story of Carmarthen, p.49. But The Welshman, 14 March 1902, states that he retired from school-mastering eight to ten years before his death. There is thus a lacuna of five to seven years during which Alcwyn Evans might have kept a school in Little Bridge Street.
