Evans

The Hubbard Family Tree

EVANS

Evans – a Welsh surname created from the personal name Lefan, Evan or Iuen, a version of John.  One of the earliest bits of family writing is in Welsh by John Evans (brother of Lewis Evans) in 1760, of Glasbury Llyswen, quoting Ecclesiastes 9. verse 11

Mi a droais ac a welais dan heaud, had yw y rhedfa yn nar rhyffel yn eiddo'r cedyrn na'r bwyd yn eiddo'r pwyllog, na ffafr yn eiddo'r cyfarwydd: ond amser a damwain a ddig wydd iddynt oll.

I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.   KJV

It was this quote that inspired Joan Evans to call her book on the story of Arthur Evans and his forebears - TIME & CHANCE
