Richard Fenton (1747-1821), poet and topographical writer. His friends included Oliver Goldsmith, David Garrick, Samuel Johnson, Sir Richard Colt Hoare, William Owen Pughe, Theophilus Jones and Sir Joshua Reynolds. "He built up a large library of books, manuscripts … and toured Wales extensively to visit prehistoric sites, many of which he excavated, and other features in the landscape. His books and journals, more tour literature than history, are entertaining reading, being an attractive mixture of accurate reporting and recording interspersed with personal descriptions of scenery and accounts of oral history, local legends, and substantial alfresco meals." ODNB

John Fisher (1862-1930), Welsh scholar. FSA.
